I give it a Top Ten tag because an intersection between the LAPD and The Secret Service is such a strange thing to dramatize in the first place.
Oh-oh…the next scene is a room full of actors. This is going to take forever to edit!
I can operate a radio AND point up like Henry Corden.
And look at me! I've got blueprints!
While we're at Parker Center, let's drop on in at SID (Scientific Investigation Divison) -
Where did this eagle come from?
Go tell Suzy to put the stills in order of the episode!
OKAY WE WILL GO TELL EVERYONE AT THE MEETING
The Presidential Suite set is the coolest we will see, probably - Great work by Art Director John E. Chilberg, II -
Here is the corridor leading to and from -
This is one groovy hotel corridor!
The doorbell is in a brass rosette!
There's a stone wall being artfully taken over by some plant life.
The wallpaper and double entry doors are aggressively styled.
No idea what is going on with that black and white pattern, like a shoji screen or glass?
Radioactive Eagle Time!!
This wall is nice - the 1/2 fireplace is pretty avant garde. I like the roman bricks in stacked bond like that.
Ninth floor corridor:
Olan Soule gets to use the Geiger Counter!!!
Robert Clarke is back being a total tool!
ROBERT CLARKE YOU ARE A TOOL
I hope he never leaves Dragnet. I love all of his characters!
SUZY DONE LOST HER MIND
And lastly, let's cruise over to the press junket at LAX:
That is some old LAX Theme Building footage.
We witness a tender moment between Joe and Agent Roger Franke:
He falls asleep holding his coffee. Awh.
