    Follow That Man, aka Man Against Crime, a crime drama broadcast by CBS, NBC and DuMont Television between 1949 and 1956, was a true original. This series paved the way for modern day shows featuring private detectives. The main character Mike Barnett (Ralph Bellamy, 1949-1955 and Frank Lovejoy, 1956), a freelance private eye based in New York, opens the series with a bang - well, a spray of gunfire to be more precise. This classic tough guy oozes the alpha machismo and wise cracking savvy integral to that era. During the series Barnett takes on the wiliest criminals and the most dangerous cases that have him on the trail of jewel thieves, rescuing friends from con men and even partnering up with a female cop in one episode to help him recover over $200,000 worth of stolen diamonds. This series is for any fan of vintage detective procedural, with plenty of violence and heroic action to ease even the jitteriest jones for classic crime drama.moreless
