Gritty and realistic, Naked City
is one of television's best police dramas first broadcast in the early '60s. Starring Paul Burke as Detective Adam Flint and Horace McMahon as his boss, Lt. Mike Parker, this DVD contains four episodes.
"Five Cranks For Winter...Ten Cranks For Spring": After manager Gus Slate (Herschel Bernardi) turns on his boxer Johnny Meigs (Robert Duvall), and helps his opponent, Meigs is mercilessly pummeled...all for a rose.
"Torment Him Much And Hold Him Long": Robert Duvall is Barney Sonners, a down-on-his-luck bartender who must borrow money from a crime gang to help his family, but then is relentlessly tormented.
"Goodbye Mama, Hello Auntie Maud": When Eliza Annis is murdered, her daughter unwittingly has a romance with the killer, the family chauffeur (James Coburn) and is blackmailed by the butler (Carroll O'Connor).
"Spectre Of The Rose Street Gang" Carroll O'Connor is one of three successful businessmen who killed a boy long ago. An old friend who learns about the crime hopes to use the information for his own interests.
Further adventures in the NAKED CITY occur on this collection of episodes from the classic television show. "Spectre of the Roses Street Gang" finds Carroll O'Connor guilty of killing a boy. James Coburn stars in "Goodbye Mama, Hello Auntie Maud," as the chauffeur and killer of a woman whose daughter he proceeds to romance. "Torment Him Much and Hold Him Long" features Robert Duvall as a barman in debt to a crime syndicate, and in a whole world of trouble as a result. Finally, "Five Cranks for Winter, Ten Cranks for Spring" tells the tale of some dubious behind-the scenes activities at a boxing match.
