Huzzah! I got my copy of the Bill Elliott Detective Mysteries set the other day, and made some new screen caps from Chain of Evidence (1957). Here once again, but in sharp focus this time, is ill-tempered sleazeball Carl Fowler. He’s trying to pull a fast one on Sgt. Mike Duncan (Don Haggerty) and Lt. Andy Doyle (Elliott). He may be selling it but they ain’t buying it.
Oh man – much better! Good quality prints are worth their weight in gold. Thank you, Warner Archive Collection!
You see this absolutely dreadful screen cap from a very poor quality “collector to collector” DVD of Chain of Evidence (1957)?
Well, I’m happy to report that this film has finally attained that loftiest of goals – an official, proper commercial DVD release! You can now purchase the Bill Elliott Detective Mysteries collection, featuring Chain and four other films starring former cowboy star “Wild” Bill Elliot in his new role as LA County Sheriff’s detective Andy Doyle. I’ll be buying it myself as soon as possible, and replacing all of these substandard screen caps from Chain with shiny new ones. Good news!
Today we take another look at director Paul Landres‘ Chain of Evidence (1957) and Timothy’s 2×4-wielding low-life Carl Fowler. He’s been pulled in by the cops, but naturally he denies everything.
EDITOR’S NOTE 06/02/14: The original poor quality screen cap that accompanied this post has now been replaced with one from the new commercial DVD release! You can now purchase the two-disc Bill Elliott Detective Mysteries set that includes Chain of Evidence. Thank you, Warner Archive Collection!
