Naked City (1962)

As noted in previous posts about Naked City, the program differentiated itself from other police dramas by focusing on the psychology of what drives a criminal to break the law, as well as highlighting the more cerebral thought processes of a detective like Adam Flint, who tries to understand the motivations in the cases he is examining rather than "just the facts." As the series moved through the latter half of Season 3 and into early Season 4 in 1962, the stories became less about criminal acts and more about human motivation, inching closer to the territory of series like The Eleventh Hour and Dr. Kildare rather than that of 87th Precinct or The Untouchables. Though the year starts out with basic murder investigations in "The Face of the Enemy" (January 3, 1962), "Portrait of a Painter" (January 10, 1962), and "The Contract" (January 24, 1962), the main focus of these episodes is psychological:  1) a World War II army veteran who resorts to battle tactics when his life begins to spiral out of control, 2) a jealous husband who blocks out his wife's murder because he can't reconcile killing the person he loves most, and 3) two men vying for the heart of a young woman, one of them much older than she is but to whom she owes her life, driving her to kill herself when she cannot get them to negotiate a settlement between their competing interests in her. But then we are treated to one of the series' most blunt and unflinching depictions of psychopathic behavior in "A Case Study of Two Savages" (February 7, 1962) in which Arkansas hillbilly runaways Ansel Boake and Ora Mae Youngham cut a swath of brutal murders in New York just because he is trying to buy her an expensive wedding ring that he cannot afford. We don't get a detailed investigation of their pasts that sheds light on their motivations--we only hear from her mother that she was just an average young girl while he came from a family that was poor and mean and from an early age displayed a penchant for violence. We can imagine that he may have been abused and thus felt nothing for anyone who stood between him and his goal, but this is mere speculation not provided by the episode itself. And likewise there is no explanation for why Ora Mae witnesses his brutality and is not the least bit disturbed by it but instead seems to applaud it when he assaults a bartender to steal the money from his cash register. Like many other episodes of Naked City, this story is wrapped by opening and closing narrator comments sarcastically observing how far the human race has progressed from its violent cave-dweller roots while showing the viewer a pair of humans who have not progressed at all.

It's worth noting that these opening and closing narrator bromides are a thinly veiled attempt to elevate Naked City above the level of disposable entertainment to that of academic illustration that one might find in high-brow literature. Another episode attempting this veneer of sophistication is "Idylls of a Running Back" (September 26, 1962) which begins by citing the description of the archetypal warrior king as delineated by Sir James George Frazier in The Golden Bough: A Study in Comparative Religion and then proceeds to apply that description to a modern-day professional football player. The series also sometimes succeeds in transcending commonplace criminal urges such as in "Strike a Statue" (May 16, 1962), which on one level is about a pressure campaign and eventual murder attempt to stop the creation of a sculpture depicting a one-time revered revolutionary leader after he has turned into a tyrant. However, sculptor Kermit Garrison refuses to be bullied because of his belief that art transcends politics, history, and national borders--that it is created for everyone around the world, not just those affected by the actions of its subject. Thus, this episode is really about the uses, abuses, and true purpose of art, not about the attempted crimes of which Flint, Lt. Mike Parker, and Det. Frank Arcaro are mostly just bystanders.

However, the lives of the police force themselves takes center stage in a number of other episodes. Perhaps the best of these from 1962 is "The Rydecker Case" (June 7, 1962) in which Flint arrests a pretty young socialite for driving under the influence of drugs only to find himself on trial when the girl's mother concocts a made-up story that Flint was trying to seduce her daughter in order to hide what really happened and thereby save her daughter's engagement to a stuffy but extremely wealthy businessman. The girl's famous defense attorney Jerry Brayson (which comically rhymes with Perry Mason) comes off as two-faced in accepting the mother's obvious fabrication, turning a blind eye to her bribing a taxi driver to change his story to introduce doubts about Flint's motivation, but also goading the prosecuting attorney (a former student of his) to grow a pair, and privately giving a withering examination of his star witness to ensure that she is telling the truth before he puts her on the witness stand. It isn't clear where his morals lie, other than in building up his own reputation by making sure his triumph will be assured but not too easy. That star witness, however, forces Flint to admit that at one time he did step over the line of propriety as a police officer when he found himself attracted to her and made excuses to keep seeing her for a while, even though he was dating Libby at the time, before finally admitting to himself that it was wrong. Flint's halo has been damaged, and the socialite gets off with a slap on the wrist, but Parker tries to console him with the fact that such collateral damage is just part of a policeman's  job, and Libby, though not thrilled that her fiance had a roving eye, is content that she was the one he stuck with. All of which makes Naked City more realistic in its depiction of policemen than any other series of its time. Also worth mentioning on this topic is the episode "Goodbye Mama, Hello Auntie Maude" (June 20, 1962) because it shows Parker in a slightly unfavorable light as he tries to use his personal connection as an old family friend of spinster Ellen Annis to influence an investigation into her mother's sudden though not totally unexpected death. Though another detective from a different precinct has been assigned to the case, Parker tries to steer him to find nothing suspicious even though it is known that Ellen had a loud argument with her mother about disposition of the family home just before the mother died. We see Parker's personal affection for Ellen compromise his professional integrity, and ultimately it turns out the mother was murdered rather than succumbing naturally to her illness, though Ellen is not the guilty party. Frank Arcaro gets a chance to shine in "Kill Me While' I'm Young So I Can Die Happy!" (October 17, 1962) when he takes a personal interest in retired policewoman Ruth Callan after she tries unsuccessfully to kill herself by jumping off a building. After she is given a suspended sentence by the judge because she has a terminal illness, Arcaro takes her out for a drink and learns that she lost her fiance 25 years ago when he was killed in the line of duty, and now she is facing death having never really lived, having buried herself in her work and a gruff exterior to hide her pain. Arcaro decides to let her finally experience life by taking her to a family party for his nephew's engagement and dancing the night away, then getting a new children's playground named after her to ensure her legacy. In this case, Arcaro's extra-professional interest doesn't influence the outcome of her case but shows a sense of compassion rarely given an opportunity for expression in his day-to-day assignments. Far less effective is the episode "Today the Man Who Kills Ants Is Coming" (March 7, 1962), which depicts the mental breakdown of an officer from the 65th who can't financially support his family on a policeman's salary. The story and acting by John Larch are overwrought in a way that unintentionally recalls the Monty Python skit about the Royal Hospital for Over-Acting.

Circling back to the topic of the decriminalizing of plots in Naked City, the prime example from the 1962 episodes is "The Multiplicity of Herbert Konish" (May 23, 1962), which explores the multiple simultaneous lives of the title character. It's a bit unrealistic that Flint would be involved in this non-case in the first place. The setup is that he gets a complaint about a new street mission from a chronic crank but is impressed at the work being done by its priestly patron Dr. George Ripple. On the premise that he needs to verify if the mission is allowed to provide overnight accommodations for its homeless beneficiaries, Flint discovers there is no Dr. George Ripple, so he tries digging deeper to find out who this person is and whether his alias is a cover-up for something illegal. The investigation leads him to discover that the man is actually Herbert Konish, a brokerage firm accountant, but he is also under other names a poet, ping-pong hustler, and an urban farm owner. He explains that after starting out as an accountant, he eventually wanted to do other things, but not give up accounting, which he still enjoys. Even though his wife has no inkling of his alternate identities, none of his pursuits are illegal, and at the end of the investigation, he is turned loose and allowed to keep doing what he has been doing. The episode, then, is an investigation in search of a nonexistent crime and is actually just the exploration of a quirky character, or psychological profile, if you will. Another such episode is "Memory of a Red Trolley Car" (June 13, 1962) which superficially revolves around Flint & Company searching for a college chemistry professor who has been exposed to a toxic chemical spill, even though there is no antidote, and the only thing that can be done for him is to attempt to lessen his symptoms and to keep him under observation. But the real story of the episode is the professor's attempt to understand his own lifelong courting of danger, including sabotaging his marriage, which springs from a twisted moral standard he learned from his disapproving father. Again, no crime is committed, and it is questionable why the police are involved in hunting for a man who poses no threat to anyone but himself. Likewise there is no crime committed in "King Stanislaus and the Knights of the Round Stable" (December 12, 1962), only the worry that a meat company dock worker and a butcher will harm each other since they are believed to be engaging in an old-world Polish custom of drinking and then fighting to resolve whatever has come between them. In this case, the dock worker accuses the butcher of having an affair with and fathering the child his wife is about to have only because he has a twisted fear that anything good will be taken away from him, prompted by losing his parents in a drowning incident when he was a young boy. The pattern in these last two episodes is the classic childhood trauma resulting in an illogical adult psychosis, all of which belongs on a psychiatrist's couch, not in a police precinct.

Many other episodes, which could be cited ad nauseum, hinge on a relatively minor offense, such as the public disturbance as the result of attempted suicide in "Kill Me While' I'm Young So I Can Die Happy!" mentioned above, or the prank threatening phone calls that lead to half-hearted blackmail in "Make It Fifty Dollars and Love to Nona" (November 14, 1962), as a stepping-off point for a deeper psychological probe. Sometimes those examinations lead to bigger issues, such as the abandonment of the elderly in the latter episode, or the treatment of the physically disfigured in "And by the Sweat of Thy Brow" (October 10, 1962). These are the episodes that give Naked City its well-deserved status as one of the best television dramas of the early 1960s. The fact that the series regulars were policemen became by Season 4 a triviality.
