Down Three Dark Streets

Watchable enough, thanks to the performances, despite an overblown finale. But with its commentary and backstage glimpses of new detection techniques as Crawford's FBI agent unravels three cases on which his buddy was working when killed, it looks like a slightly sheepish echo of Dragnet (whose first movie spinoff also appeared in 1954).
