Dragnet was perhaps the most famous and influential police procedural drama in media history. The series gave millions of audience members a feel for the boredom and drudgery, as well as the danger and heroism, of real-life police work. Actor and producer Jack Webb´s aims in Dragnet were for realism and unpretentious acting. He achieved both goals, and Dragnet remains a key influence on subsequent police dramas in many media. The show´s cultural impact is such that even after five decades, elements of Dragnet are known to those who have never seen or heard the program - including the famous four-note introduction to the theme music and the opening narration, ´´Ladies and gentlemen: the story you are about to hear is true. Only the names have been changed to protect the innocent.´´ The original Dragnet starring Jack Webb as Sgt. Friday ran from from June 3, 1949, to February 26, 1957 on NBC radio. Webb insisted on realism in every aspect of the show. The dialogue was clipped, understated and sparse, influenced by the hardboiled school of crime fiction. Scripts were fast moving but didn’t seem rushed. Every aspect of police work was chronicled, step by step: From patrols and paperwork, to crime scene investigation, lab work and questioning witnesses or suspects. The detectives’ personal lives were mentioned but rarely took center stage. ´´Underplaying is still acting´´, Webb told Time. ´´We try to make it as real as a guy pouring a cup of coffee.´´ Language: English. Narrator: Jack Webb, Barton Yarborough, Ben Alexander, Raymond Burr. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/006556de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Daymon Runyon was best known for his short stories celebrating the world of Broadway in New York City that grew out of the Prohibition era. To New Yorkers of his generation, a ´´Damon Runyon character´´ evoked a distinctive social type from the Brooklyn or Midtown demi-monde. The adjective ´´Runyonesque´´ refers to this type of character, as well as to the type of situations and dialog that Runyon depicted. He spun humorous and sentimental tales of gamblers, hustlers, actors, and gangsters, few of whom go by ´´square´´ names, preferring instead colorful monikers such as ´´Nathan Detroit´´, ´´Benny Southstreet´´, ´´Big Jule´´, ´´Harry the Horse´´, ´´Good Time Charley´´, ´´Dave the Dude´´, or ´´The Seldom Seen Kid´´. His distinctive vernacular style is known as ´´Runyonese´´: a mixture of formal speech and colorful slang, almost always in present tense, and always devoid of contractions. He is credited with coining the phrase ´´Hooray Henry´´, a term now used in British English to describe an upper-class, loud-mouthed, arrogant twit. Runyon´s fictional world is also known to the general public through the musical Guys and Dolls based on two of his stories, ´´The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown´´ and ´´Blood Pressure´´. The musical additionally borrows characters and story elements from a few other Runyon stories, most notably ´´Pick the Winner´´. The film Little Miss Marker (and its two remakes, Sorrowful Jones and the 1980 Little Miss Marker) grew from his short story of the same name. Fifty-two half-hour episodes. Digitally remastered.
