[done] Crime Story, The Television Series Set in 1963. 1986-1988
Published 01/03/2007 @ 17:46:46, By WorldWideRetro.Com
This is my first submission to the IMCDb. One of my favorite all time series is Crime Story. A gritty crime drama from the mid eighties set in 1963. The series is LOADED with period correct (mostly) vehicles of all types. The only reference you guys have up so far has the pilot misnamed a "made for TV movie". I'll be documenting the entire series. So far I have over 70 images from DVD with 8 more first season episodes and the entire second season left to document.

These images were in the weekly series intro (before the setting moved to Las Vegas) and are taken from scenes in the original Pilot.

Click the thumbs for full size (700 pixel width) images.

Features a 1959 Ford Galaxie Sedan that was used throughout the series as an unmarked Police Car. Also in the frame (front to back on left side); 1962 Oldsmobile Starfire; unknown second car, 1959 Cadillac, and an approx. 1960 International Police Paddy Wagon.

Features a 1960 Ford Fairlane Chicago Police Sedan. I believe there is a similar pic is in the Db, but this one is clearer.

Features a parade of Motorcycle Trike cops parading from a tunnel. I believe this to be taken from archival footage and patched into the intro, not taken from an actual series scene. There are two other 40's cars and what looks like the tail of a 1957 Ford on the left side.

Features the tail of what I believe to be a 1956 Chrysler. This car was used throughout the series as well. I'll have other shots of it up soon.

Okay, this is kind of a clunky way to add stuff to the database. Hope I did it right. Let me know if I have an cars wrong or messed with your Db protocal in any way.

More To Come,

Hi,
Thanks for the pictures.
Sorry but currently we have some "lateness" with the pictures submissions. As you can see, there are several older topics that are not yet marked as "done", so it may take a week until we reach this one :wink:

Kool,

I just "assumed" this was an active forum. I'll lay off with new pics until you guys are in a better place.

Well, as long as you do not send pics every day or something like that there is no problem :wink: If you have other pictures for the same movie/series, it is not a problem to continue to add them here, so we add all of these at the same time.

Slammer...here's the first set of photos you sent:

http://www.imcdb.org/movie.php?id=550437

If you'd like, copy the descriptions you've added above to each page for each car - as well as the main story description to the main page. That way it will show up with your screen name (otherwise i'd copy/paste it but it would show up under mine).

Then to make it easier with the photos for the next set, I'd suggest just listing the photo, the car's name and then how it was used in the show (you'll see at the bottom of the page for your show a "star" ratings 1-5 guide). So then it's just a list of:

http://www.worldwideretro.com/modules/coppermine/albums/Crime%20Story%20Cars/thumb_intro-cop-60-ford.jpg
1960 Ford Fairlane ***

That way it'll be quicker and then once they're up you can add your descriptions and comments about the cars like you did above. You can add the new photos to this same thread instead of starting a new one..that way it'll bump it back to the top.

Please also check the star ratings i gave the first set of 4 and see if they match up to how you think they were used using the star ratings I mentioned.

Thanks!

Andy.
