Synopsis

Superstar cowboy actor "Wild Bill" Elliott traded in his boots for gumshoes at Allied Artists for a series of crackling crime dramas playing a Los Angeles County Sheriff's department detective lieutenant Andy Doyle whose dogged determination and canny mind lead him past the obvious suspects to nab the real killers before fade-out. Unhinged war veterans, not-so-innocent blind men, baby racket blackmail, kidnapped cons and careless stranglers all appear in intrepid lieutenant's case files. Tough guy character actor Don Haggerty appears in the final three films as sidekick Sgt. Mike Duncan.

Two disc, Five-film collection includes:

  • Dial Red "0" (1955) A traumatized vet triggers a citywide manhunt when he goes AWOL from the bughouse and his soon-to-be-ex-wife gets bumped off. 16x9 Widescreen

  • Footsteps in the Night (1957) A high-stakes poker game ends in murder - and Lt. Andy must figure out why before he can figure out who. 16x9 Widescreen (Pictured on the right)

      These were very good movies. I prefer "Wild Bill" Elliott in westerns and I hope that Warners will bring out more of his excellent western features soon. Never-the-less, these were enjoyable.

          Bill Elliott detective mysteries are very enjoyable and unpredictable. Revistis the Golden Age of the 1950's. Especially liked "Dial Red 0", where Keith Larsen portrays a war veteran who is framed for his wife's murder.

            While I've always been a fan of Bill Elliot westerns (the peaceable man), this is the first time I've seen him as a detective. The stories are well written and are more interesting to watch today since they were filmed in the 1950's. You get to see vintage cars, diners etc. The quality of the prints are prestine, with the volume a little bit on the low side.
