"Naked City" --
the television cop series of 60 years ago, 
as Window on NYC, 1958 -- 1963

August 5, 2021 --

LPR heartily recommends "Naked City" for a view of NYC when men wore hats, people readily offered cigarets to others, and made calls by pay phones and rotary phones. Especially poignant, the programs that were filmed in Pennsylvania Stations.

And see episodes where  Peter Falk of "Colombo" fame played bad guys, Telly Savalas, later known as "Kojak" , also played a villain.  And see Robert Redford as a neo-Nazi.

Just google "Wikipedia  Naked City series" and you will get the listing of all Naked City episodes, from when it was a half hour program, 1958 - 59, and the seasons of 1960 - 63 when it ran for an hour.  See also the list of all the well-known actors who were in the episodes, and those who went on to be well-known.
