The Line Up
Volume 3

 
“Ladies and Gentlemen, we take you now behind the scenes of a police headquarters in a great American City, where, under the cold, glaring lights, will pass before us the innocent, the vagrant, the thief, the murderer. This is The Line Up!
 
Almost every single episode of The Line Up opened the same way. Lieutenant Ben Guthrie, portrayed by Bill Johnstone for the show’s entire run, entered the room where Sergeant Matt Grebb (Wally Maher), then later Sergeant Pete Karger (Jack Moyles) had literally lined up a rogue’s gallery for witnesses and crime victims to view. Guthrie, often with another officer interrupting, would then visit briefly with a particular person, explaining in his own way what was about to happen. When someone identified a member of the parade before them as the person they saw or the criminal, then they were held for questioning. Almost without fail before the process was completed, Lieutenant Guthrie would be summoned away to work on something else, which usually unfolded into the case at the center of that episode.
 
Not every case on The Line Up was a headline grabber or high profile murder. Lieutenant Guthrie chased down his share of truly evil villains, but largely he pursued robbers, con artists, thieves, thugs, and the occasional murderer.
 
Guthrie and his men worked crimes in ‘a great American city’, one that was never truly given a name. Some believe that the city was intended to be San Francisco, especially since writers sometimes garnered ideas for episodes from that city’s police department. This wasn’t the case, though, as often street names, neighborhoods, and even building names were borrowed from locations in cities other than San Francisco. E. Jack Neuman, a writer contributing several episodes to the series, made a point to slip locations in from his own childhood, having grown up in Denver, Colorado. Other writers did this as well, causing this ‘great American city’ to have a neat amalgam of characteristics, including a waterfront, a ferry going to and from somewhere, and a rather spread out collection of suburbs.
 
Ride along with Lieutenant Ben Guthrie as he solves big city cases in twelve original broadcasts of The Line Up, Volume 3, restored to sparkling digital quality.
