"TfieD.L, " (1957) Produced and
directed by Jack Webb, starring
Whether it's some no good punk who
murdered someone after reading a
Flaubert story or a thinly disguised
Timothy Leary type guru, when Jack
Webb would launch into one of his sca
thing diatribes there simply wasn't a
more repulsive yet, hilarious human
being on television. He was the con
science of the Nixon Era's 'law and
order' mentality. Some have called him
an autuer. His directorial style was
bizarre at best. Two or three cameras
were practically nailed to the floor.
There was little movement by the camera
(that would be cramatic) and the
actors often midnlessly read their lines
'cold' off cue cards or teleprompters
(otherwise the actors might get dramatic).
Webb told TV Guide in 1972: "as for a
definite style, all I can say is that the
only thing we've always insisted on is
an economy of dialogue. We like a clean
script, not too much verbiage on the
part of the officers." Unless of course it
was Webb's own dialogue. In that
situation, after listening to the pathetic
whining of some guttersnipe our hero
would launch into a barrage of scowl
ing, mean spiritedness that would make
Don Rickles envious:
To a kid on LSD who thinks he's a
chair: "You're real far out and groovy
To a child molestor: "I've dealt with
you before and when I did it took me a
month to wash off the filth."
To a guru who gives out acid: "will
you be holding the poor kids hand at
two in the morning when he's lying in
the gutter vomiting?"
And to a filthy punk kid who cites
Huxley as a justification for drug use:
"I've read Huxley; he experimented
with LSD under a doctor's supervision
and the total amount of LSD he took in
all his experiments amounted to less
than most kids take for a single trip.
Now I've heard an awful lot of propa
ganda about the way the right kind of
sugar cube can expand your mind. Son,
if you wanna expand your mind pay a
