Comments: Man Out of Time

That 'dissatisfied' speech was great. Could apply anytime.

Howie Carr was recommending your offering on his show yesterday. Put it up on his website.

Did you ever see "The D.I."? Webb played a drill instructor. Standard pap, but good.

Perfect depiction of the no bullshite D.I.

As usual - just the facts.

You really should look up Pete Kelley's Blues which ran for one season. Forget the movie.... the radio show was every bit as unsparing as DRAGNET.

And it employed Webb's love of Jazz.

It's on the internet.... a really wonderful find... like the early GUNSMOKE on the radio with Conrad.

They NEVER could have brought the radio shows level of Western reality to TV...

Case in point.

A freezing winter day with 4 feet of snow on the ground... Chester and Matt flounder across the street to the Long Branch.... sitting on the front porch was a little indian boy shivering uncontrollably.

Matt and Chester try to find out where his family is,,, and then open his mouth to find a cowboy had cut his tongue out.
