Last week I caught a one off series pilot from 1957 called CHICAGO 2-1-2. Frank Lovejoy plays an investigator for the Chicago Fire Department. There has been a string of arsons in a small rundown area of the city. Lovejoy is sent in to have a look, he soon has a suspect, Roy Thinnes, but he needs to catch the rat in action. It is only a matter of time before someone is killed in a blaze. Not great, but not bad either. Of note here is the crew. Big screen director Norm Foster (KISS THE BLOOD OFF MY HANDS) helms the episode while 2 time Oscar nominated Bert (CRIME WAVE) Glennon is the cinematographer.
