104. Dragnet: “The Big Saw” & Other OTR Programs

Here is the line up for Show #104,  October 9, 2017:

1. Dragnet  4-6-54  "The Big Saw"

Joe and Frank, who are working with the Robbery Division, investigate the armed robbery of a local bank, their leads take them to a local rental car agency and a mysterious woman who has a purse full of hundred dollar bills. 


2. The Halls of Ivy   6/7/50   "D-Day"

When Vicki discovers her husband's calendar designates June 7th as a "Second D-Day" she asks him what it means.  For the life of the professor, he can't remember.  And a very funny show unfolds as he tries to figure out what the cryptic message means.  Good episode.

3. Gunsmoke​​​​​​​​​     7-19-54  "The Queue"

John Meston has written an outstanding story that offers a truly unique view of prejudice in America during the late 1800s.  The story deals with a Chinese immigrant who comes to Dodge City, and the terrible way many of the citizens of Dodge treat him. 

This is a unique episode and again emphasizes why Gunsmoke was considered the first adult Western.
