|Broderick Crawford, starring as |
Dan Mathews in "Highway Patrol".
A few months ago I ran across this old booklet based on the popular old TV series, "Highway Patrol". I am showing a few illustrations from the book, they are rather humorous to me. I loved this old program and can still remember the theme "song". It was different seeing a gruff and older middle aged man instead of the "pretty boy" types for a change. A change I actually liked!
The show was popular during its four years of first run syndication during the years of 1955-1959.
Today there are hundreds of possible TVs shows/movies to watch but for some reason, I can't find a thing to watch! Why is it I loved the old shows when we had only 2 or 3 channels? Fuzzy black and white, too!
Broderick Crawford was born in 1911 and died in 1986.

|Dan left hungry but soon he had so many problems that|
thoughts of breakfast were driven from his mind.
[ Cindy's words, not Dan's ;~) ]
Some good advice from "Dan" ... best part of video only lasts about 30 seconds, I promise!
