Jack Webb and Barton Yarborough star as Joe Friday and Ben Romero -- just a couple of cops doing their job. Follow them step-by-step through twenty true-to-life cases, drawn from the files of the Los Angeles Police Department.
Their dialogue was never clichéd or exaggerated, and their cases never relied on jumped-up action sequences to deliver impact. Whether they were on the trail of a car thief with violent tendencies, a fast-moving gang of safecrackers, a kidnapper, a mail thief, or a murderer, their job was the same: get 'em.
