Dragnet 1970: Burglary Auto | Forgery | Narco

Burbank, CA: National Broadcasting Company [NBC], 1969. Three scripts from the seminal police procedural television program, from its colorful, pop culture-infused revival made between 1967-1970, starring Jack Webb and Henry Morgan, along with a relentless cast of hippies, druggies, bad parents, priests, and a host of substantially less hip, efficient, and often troubled men and women of the Los Angeles Police Department. The collection includes:
