  • One of the all-time greats

    A remarkable example of the "prime-time parables of the New Frontier" that graced the Air waves from about 1960( The second season of Naked City) to 1965, when Slattery's People was canceled for good. This series was magnificent. Almost ever episode was brilliantly written and the show itself tackled complex and troubling moral and social issues. It won-and deserved four emmies. E.G. Marshall was wonderful as Lawrence Preston, and Robert Reed ( who unfortunatly is best known for The Brady Bunch) played his son. Some of TV and Hollywoods greatest stars got their start appearing on this show, including Dustin Hoffman. I wish one could find it on DVD. 9( Incidentally, the episode The Swo0rn Twelve was directed by Michael Powell. Yes, folks, THAT Michael Powell.)
