Classic Christmas Dragnet


, Blogger: Orry's Orations
I'm used to the 1967 version of Dragnet's Christmas Story where a boy takes off with a statue of the baby Jesus. Today for the first time I saw the original version from something like 1953. They had the same actor play the priest, which I thought was cool. I like the remake better. The original felt slow to me ... but it may be that I'm just used to the later one.


How ironic. I just started watching the old classic Dragnets from about 1967-1968 on Hulu. Despite how old they are, they had some pretty good stuff on them.

Dragnet was one of those shows that never died. It just kept coming back for a few years at a time. It was probably going to be back for one more swing had Jack Webb not died. It was going to morph Adam-12 into it after its final season.
