      From November 1957, Highway Patrol: Safecracker was the fourth outing of this police drama’s third season. It was actually a very calm show, I thought. It was easy to watch with nothing that really screamed ‘I’m great’ and nothing that moaned of it being horrible. It made for an entertaining half hour, while not being a standout in any way.

      Highway Patrol: Safecracker follows Stanley Wright, a safecracker, and his accomplice wife,

        What I liked about the story is that it was easy going and that it showed something not seen on the show before, which was the safecracker.

        There were some poor directing choices in my opinion on how some of the action towards the

        end was handled. Where people made their moves and such was a bit odd in my view. Conversely, this is one of the few times I’ve seen an arrested person padded down before being placed inside the patrol car. That’s way overdue.

        Overall, the show was decent. Brett King and Julie Bennett as the Wrights were solid guest stars. William Boyett was superb in his all too brief bit as Officer Johnson, too.
