Description by OLDIES.com:
In four, tense and exciting episodes of this vintage TV series, New York Policewoman Casey Jones (Beverly Garland) fights crime by handling dangerous assignments - from the gritty streets of Manhattan to the Coney Island Boardwalk.
Stranglehold: While hunting down the killer of a merchant seaman, Casey befriends the victim's girlfriend.
Earthbound Satellite: Casey infiltrates a notorious gambling operation posing as a fast-living socialite.
The Gentle Gun-Man: In her investigation of a syndicate that has been flooding the streets with illegal firearms, Casey impersonates a slain gunman's girlfriend.
Fiesta At Midnight: Casey fights to clear a Puerto Rican youth who is being railroaded for a murder he didn't commit.
Younger viewers may not realize it, but Angie Dickinson in fact wasn't the first major 'Police Woman' to grace the television airwaves: two decades prior, Beverly Garland (of SCARECROW AND MRS. KING fame) toplined the series DECOY (1957-59), as Casey Jones - a no-nonsense female cop willing to go undercover, into all parts of the city, to complete dangerous assignments. This box set contains four original episodes of the program, as originally broadcast. STRANGLEHOLD finds Casey hunting down the individual responsible for slaying a merchant seaman; EARTHBOUND SATELLITE has Casey infiltrating a seedy gambling ring; THE GENTLE GUN-MAN has Casey infiltrating a syndicate responsible for smuggling illegal firearms; and FIESTA AT MIDNIGHT has Casey working to clear a Puerto Rican boy of a crime he did not commit.
