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.

          Disc 1:

          Dial Red 0:
          The Film looked great: Picture Quality and Sound are nice, this is a good print!
          The image is sharp enough, excellent contrast, and the sound is clear!
          It's uneven in spots, with some softness and scratches and a few bad frame.
          Very watchable print

          Sudden Danger:
          The print is quite good, but there are some white specks, scratches, a few bad frames, but the audio track is clear. Decent contrast, relatively sharp 'image', and quite good black.
          So very watchable print.

          Disc2:

          Calling Homicide:
          The print look like " OK": it's uneven in spots, with some softness and scratches and a few bad frame, but decent contrast, acceptable sharpness. the audio track is quite alright also.
          Watchable print

          Chain of Evidence:
          The print is nice, only some minor issue: some white specks, scratches, and a few bad frames. The audio track is clean and clear, but maybe to low. Very Good contrast, Sharp 'image', and quite good Black.
          So very watchable print.

          Footsteps in The Night:
          The print is quite good, but there are some white specks and a few bad frames. The audio track ( maybe too low) is clear. Decent contrast, relatively sharp 'image', and quite good black.
          Watchable print.

            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.

                Comments about Bill Elliott Detective Mysteries Five-Film Collection:

                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.

                  Comments about Bill Elliott Detective Mysteries Five-Film Collection:

                  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.
