Public Defender - Rare TV Classics

Public Defender - Rare TV Classics

After many months of work, we are proud to present our collection of Public Defender TV classics. These shows were transferred from original assets and are not copies of any other previously released versions. Public Defender Vol. 1 includes thirty beautiful quality episodes in a 6 DVD set. You will also find Public Defender Vol. 2 is available. Yes, we know some of these shows are available for download or can be viewed on YouTube. But the quality of most of these is nasty. Our collection includes nice quality film transfers. For more information or to order these rare TV classics, visit MyVideoClassics.com.

Reed Hadley stars as Bart Matthews, Public Defender, who defends the poor and others who cannot afford an attorney. All episodes are based on actual cases from across the country. When this series was created, the concept of the public defender was little known in the United States except in capital cases. The series aired on CBS from March 11, 1954 to June 23, 1955. The series was filmed by Hal Roach Studios in Culver City, California. The Public Defender originally aired at 10 pm ET. Reed Hadley later starred in another classic TV show, RACKET SQUAD.

Shannon TV Shows - Rare TV Classics

Shannon TV Shows

Wow, we've been searching for good quality versions of this rare TV classic. This collection includes 16 rare episodes. George Nader is Joe Shannon, an insurance investigator for the Transport Bonding and Insurance Company, is assigned cases by his boss Bill Cochran who is played by Regis Toomey. The main character of Shannon is his 1961 Buick which is specially equipped with every high-tech gadget from that period. Shannon has no attractive secretary like other private eyes at the time because in his car sits a dictating machine where he recites his reports for Cochran. Shannon is the original  multi-tasker. Press a button and a movie camera pops up or a hidden gun appears. The show is based in Los Angeles and offers up some vintage street scenes of early 60's LA. Please remember these are film transfers from 1960s 16mm TV film and probably would be best viewed on a small device. These rare TV shows were filmed long before the advent of HD TV so don't expect high definition quality from old TV shows. Please visit our website MyVideoClassics.com for more information or to purchase this collection.
