Description by OLDIES.com:

A man on the run. A burst of machine gun fire. The man falls dead at the door of detective Mike Barnett. Welcome to the Big City and another hard-boiled case from Barnett's files!

Ralph Bellamy stars as tough private-eye Mike Barnett in this lean and violent TV series "Follow That Man" (aka "Man Against Crime") from the early 1950s. Created by Lawrence Klee for the Dumont Network in 1949, this program was originally broadcast live until 1952. The crime-filled episodes in this collection are from the 1953-54 seasons.

Petite Larceny: Barnett uncovers a pair of criminals disguising themselves as father and daughter, trying to steal the valuable "Star of Bethlehem" diamond necklace.

Wire Trappers: Two con men tap into telephones at a hotel and "fish" for pigeons to prey on... until they prey upon a friend of Barnett's.

Third Rail: Barnett teams up with a tough female transit cop to find $200,000 in diamonds. A crime boss claims one of his stooges left the rocks on a subway train.

Death Takes A Partner: A six-day international bicycle race turns treacherous when an old foe of Barnett's muscles in to fix the outcome.

Product Description:

Four episodes from the vintage TV show FOLLOW THAT MAN are included on this release. Tracking the fortunes of hard-bitten private detective Mike Barnett (Ralph Bellamy), the show gave him some tough cases to crack, as robbers, con men, and other shadowy figures from the criminal underworld attempt to ply their trades. FOLLOW THAT MAN aired live at its inception, but by the time these episodes were broadcast, in 1953, the show had followed the example of many other TV dramas, and was pre-recorded.
