In the Corner with Dan Hughes

Jun 17, 2014

The Lineup was probably inspired by the success of Dragnet on the radio. 

The Lineup ran on CBS from 1950 to 1953, and it had an impressive cast presenting well-written stories.

Bill Johnstone, who had played the Shadow for five years (between Orson Welles and Bret Morrison) starred as Police Lieutenant Ben Guthrie in "a great American city."

This episode, The Silk Stocking Bandit, originally aired on March 25, 1952.
