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.
