  • One of the top episodes of Dragnet!


    In a break from the usual cut and dry format that was so popular on all the incarnations of Dragnet, this was one of the few times that the writing of the show was more like a 1960s sit-com rather than a police drama.

    One of the things that helps create that light-hearted atmosphere is the part played by Ann Morgan Guilbert. Her part as the wife of a problem neighbor is very much like the part of Millie that she was so brilliant as in The Dick Van Dyke Show.

    Harry Morgan has always had great comedic timing and feel, but few knew that Jack Webb would be as good as he is in this episode.
