Unexpected comedy

This movie came out when Dragnet was an extremely popular TV series! I figured the movie would be pretty much the same staccato delivery from Joe Friday (Jack Webb). This was actually a FUNNY movie! I was very surprised! Now; I'm talking about when I first saw it in the theater back when I was a teenager. This video brought back a lot of memories for me. This was Friday with his partner Frank Smith (Ben Alexander), not Joe Gannon. The lines in the movie made it different from the radio and tv shows. Now that I own the video of it, I've watched it several times and highly recommend it to everyone. Sure; there was criminal activities, but essentially the repartee' between Friday and just about everyone in the movie was played for humor. Get it, while you can! (It's not a book, it's a vhs video)
