- Real Name
TCM aired the movie version of the Lineup last night. It was written by Stirling Silliphant, of Naked City and Route 66 fame. I'd love to see episodes of the tv show the movie was based on. A companion to Dragnet, a precursor to Naked City and Streets of San Francisco, it's suprising that The Lineup (aka San Francisco Beat) is one of the rarest shows to find from the mid to late 50s, this along with The Detectives starring Robert Taylor. I believe the Lineup was a Desilu/ CBS production, so it's probably in the hands of CBS/Paramount. With all they're putting out and how rare the show is, unless they license it, we'll probably never see it.
