Welcome to the Celluloid Fiends podcast! Hosts Moe Long (Tech Up Your Life, Cup of Moe) and Wes Clifton (W.D. Clifton, Brentwood) discuss the 1948 noir classic "He Walked By Night." The Alfred L Werker-directed police procedural crime thriller was loosely based on the real-life criminal Erwin "Machine-Gun" Walker. Actor Jack Webb, while working on "He Walked By Night," was inspired to create the successful radio program "Dragnet," which morphed into a TV series and movie. Listen as Moe and Wes break down "He Walked By Night" and its influence on the police procedural, from "Dragnet" to "Law & Order." Plus, we talk favorite noir flicks and more!
