Under the Radar DVD of the Week: 'Naked City: 20 Star-Filled Episodes'
This week, the oddest DVD to appear on release lists is:
“Naked City: 20 Star-Filled Episodes (1963)”
“There are eight million stories in the Naked City,” the famed New York City detective series’ prelude intoned. And two score of the best are offered up in “Naked City: 20 Star Filled Episodes” (due out on DVD Tuesday).
One of the first TV cop series to be filmed entirely in New York, the 1958-63 crime drama served as a training ground for numerous young actors during its tenure – including Sandy Dennis, Peter Fonda, Robert Redford, Dustin Hoffman, Gene Hackman, Diane Ladd, William Shatner and Jon Voight.
The Emmy Award-winning show distinguished itself by pushing beyond the standard good-versus-evil formula of most crime shows and reaching a more complex style of real-life crime and the unpredictability of human failings.
The series focused on the lives of detectives working out of New York’s 65th precinct.
