      Highway Patrol’s 18th show from its third year was a little different, and I liked that quite a bit. As the name might indicate, The Seventh Green, which aired back in February 1958, opened with Chief of Police Dan Mathews (Broderick Crawford) playing a round of golf with Judge Francis (Anthony Jochim).

        Also, I realized towards the end of the episode that we rarely heard sirens used in this police drama. We did get them here, quite a few even, but sirens aren’t used much for some reason.

        The murder wasn’t just a simple case. There was more to it than met the eye. What I didn’t like was the way the Mrs. Keeley (Jan Bradley) changed on a whim.

        She had been a very calm character and suddenly she became emotional and I suppose scared. It did not ring true.
