A Change of Pace for Friday & Gannon

Of course, when I think of Mr Jack Webb and Mr Harry Morgan, I think of one thing: Law & Order! But in the 1951 film Appointment With Danger, they both played lowlife criminals! Making this violent scene all the more shocking is that Webb portrays a character named ‘Joe!’

Now this can’t possibly be Joe Friday, of course, but seeing Joe deal his own brand of underworld problem-solving on a fallen Harry Morgan, who pleads to ‘Joe’ for mercy, is nonetheless disturbing!
