"The real-life case from which Prather derived his plot, by the way, was the same one used for the pre-*Dragnet* movie *He Walked by Night*, which featured a young radio actor named Jack Webb in a supporting role, and which gave that young actor the idea for a radio show that authentically depicted police work."

In case anyone wants to see it, with Jack Webb as the forensics guy, Turner Classics Movies is showing He Walked by Night on Saturday, August 4 at 10 AM (eastern).
