THE COMPLETE FILMS OF BRODERICK CRAWFORD
by Ralph Schiller

Today in the Internet age of instant communications and digitally produced images the name Broderick Crawford means nothing to twenty-first century young people. As far as they're concerned, All The King's Men is a miserable movie starring Sean Penn! They have absolutely no idea that way back in the twentieth century Broderick Crawford was a highly-paid major box-office Hollywood film star who made over ninety motion pictures. He also won the prized Academy Award Oscar for "Best Actor In A Starring Role". On top of that he starred in an enormously successful, blockbuster television series that ran for decades in world-wide syndication making him an unpaid babysitter for an entire generation of baby boomers. By the 1960's Crawford's old movies were frequently telecast on television stations all across America. Movie fans, young and old, soon recognized Broderick Crawford's name in the TV guide or film credits, and tuned-in to watch one of their favorite stars. Whether the movie was good or bad Broderick Crawford always gave his absolute best and never let audiences down.

In the pages of this book, the reader will discover an extraordinary actor and film star with an incredible body of work. He enjoyed a durable career in show business spanning forty-five years that hit Hollywood's lofty heights and bottom-scraping depths more than once. According to IMDb.com when asked about his fame as an actor Broderick Crawford answered with great humility, "My trademarks are a hoarse, grating voice and the face of a retired pugilist with small narrow eyes set in puffy features which look as though they might, years ago, have lost on points."

HIGHWAY PATROL LOCATIONS
THEN AND NOW

by Jerry L. Schneider

From October 3, 1955, through 1959, a total of 4 seasons and 156 episodes aired in syndication. A ZIV Television Production, Highway Patrol, starring Broderick Crawford, was a success and continues to air to this day.

The show was filmed as realistically as possible, which included the support of the California Highway Patrol for the first part of the first season. To create as much realism as possible, the show filmed on actual locations throughout Southern California. Most of the shows were filmed in 2 days, a few in 3. One day was spent at the studio filming interiors and/or using the studio “backlot”, what there was of it. The other day (or two) were spent out in the field. In the 156 episodes, there were around 600 locations used.

This book shows most of those locations, utilizing then images from the show and now shots taken by the author. Many of the locations have not changed or have changed very little. Other sites have changed greatly. This book shows those changes.

This book also takes the reader on a time trip back to the late 1950s, to a much simpler time in life.
