The Big Bounce | Jack Webb

Article Published: 1954
Keywords: Dragnet, police, thriller
Views: 1867

Not much smoking but plenty of politically incorrect eating in this 1954 episode of Dragnet. While the two cops don’t seem to mind at all the right of the citizen to gorge himself with “killer” food, there is not question that, in our neo-Fascist days, even this episode would be eliminated by politically correct mass media under the pressure of the Health Nazis.



Sweet Seventeen | Jack Webb

Article Published: 1953
Keywords: Dragnet, cigarettes, commercial, marijuana
Views: 2478

Episode (complete with cigarette commercial) from the times when smoking tobacco was a good thing, and smoking marijuana was considered a mind bender. Now mind-bent junk science has flipped reality.

The Big Producer | Jack Webb

Article Published: 1953
Keywords: Dragnet, police, thriller
Views: 2424

Episode complete with great cigarette commercials. Good human story. In times of common sense, pornography was considered immoral and illegal and confiscated from the youth while smoking was advertised. In our "progressive" times, smoking is immoral and illegal and confiscated from the youth, while pornography is advertised.



The Big Show | Jack Webb

Article Published: 1953
Keywords: Dragnet, police, thriller
Views: 2070

Very moving real tale of a mother who tried to make up a story to justify bringing to this world a child born out of wedlock.



The Big Betty | Jack Webb

Article Published: 1953
Keywords: Dragnet, police, thriller, fraud, con
Views: 2199

A conman is moving around the city selling junk gadgets and using the name of dead people. That causes great commotion and contempt. Different times indeed! Today conmen spread false information around the world using epidemiology and fabricating millions of dead people. Commotion is still caused by their frauds but, this time, they get millions of dollars as rewards - and, often, even the admiration of those who have been conned!



The Big Thief | Jack Webb

Article Published: 1953
Keywords: Dragnet, police, thriller
Views: 1997

Therapeutic smoking in this Dragnet episode, where an assaulted doctor asks for a cigarette to relieve tension, and Sgt. Friday is offered a smoke after his first killing on the line of duty. Today that would call for at least five studies on “wrong” behaviour and intense cigarette counting by Stanton Glantz and his gang under a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation multimillion dollar program – to say nothing of calls for laws to “protect the children”.



The Big Run | Jack Webb

Article Published: 1953
Keywords: police, thriller, Jack, Webb
Views: 1947

The usual amount of politically incorrect smoking in this Dragnet episode about an unrepentant crook. But at the time Stanton Glantz was still a kid who had not yet decided to pollute society with movie cigarette counting, epidemiologic frauds and pharmaceutical grants.



The Big Grandma | Jack Webb

Article Published: 1953
Keywords: police, thriller
Views: 4310

Old grandma distributes false cheques to collect money to give to the poor. Differently from our inverted, contemporary days where “fraud to a declared good end” becomes a laudable behaviour (see frauds on smoking and environment) and brings you to positions of political power, this grandma is caught and she goes to jail.
