The Silent Men
Each week, Douglas Fairbanks Jr. played the part of a law enforcement agent from a different agency of the federal government. Not just routine who-done-its, the crimes involved affcted real people, and Fairbanks' character helps them out. In each episode, Fairbanks checks in with his chief, played by either William Conrad or Herb Butterfield. The show ran on CBS from 10/14/1951 to 5/28/1952.
