The Lineup was a hard-boiled drama that, like Dragnet, realistically showed police doing their jobs. The show centered around the lineup, always beginning with a police sergeant ordering suspects to stand at attention so that the victim, behind one-way glass, could try to identify the criminal. While the lineup was rarely the key to solving the case, it gave the show a rhythm and allowed for humor in the interrogation of the suspects. Bill Johnstone, best known as one of the voices of The Shadow, starred as Lieutenant Ben Guthrie, along with actors who played the sergeant and a supporting cast of well-known Hollywood radio actors.
