The badge : true and terrifying crime stories that could not be presented on TV, from the creator and star of Dragnet by Jack Webb ( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 154 libraries worldwide
From 1951 to 1959, Jack Webb starred as Sergeant Joe Friday in Dragnet, the most successful police drama in television history. Webb was also the creator of Dragnet, and what made the show so revolutionary was its documentary-style format and the fact that each episode was "ripped" from the files of the LAPD. But 1950s television censors deemed many of the stories in the LAPD's files too violent or sensational for the airwaves. This is Webb's collection of stories that could not be presented on TV: untold, behind-the-scenes accounts of the Black Dahlia murder, the Brenda Allen confessions, Stephen Nash's "thrill murders," and Donald Bashor's "sleeping lady murders," to name just a few. Case by case, The Badge takes readers on a spine chilling police tour through the dark, shadowy world of Los Angeles crime.--From publisher description.
