DVD Release: Code 3: The Complete Series

DVD Release Date: July 21, 2021
Price: DVD $22.99
Studio: MPI

In 1957, Hal Roach Studios and producer Ben Fox brought the fast-paced police drama Code 3 to television…and now MPI is bringing the complete series—all 39 episodes—to DVD!

Code 3 stars Richard Travis as Sheriff George Barrett of the Los Angeles County Police Department with Denver Pyle as Sgt. Murchison and Fredd Wayne as Sgt. Bill Hollis.

Like its sister series DragnetCode 3 featured true crime cases – this time from the files of the search & rescue branch of the Los Angeles Police Department – always “changing the names to protect the innocent.” At the end of most of the broadcasts, the real-life Sheriff of Los Angeles County, Eugene W. Biscailuz, made an appearance to recap that night’s adventure.

Code 3 enjoyed a healthy run in television syndication and featured familiar supporting faces as Robert Armstrong (King Kong), William Schallert, Ray Montgomery, Stacy Keach, Sr., Russell Johnson (Gilligan’s Island), DeForest Kelley (Star Trek), Mike Connors (Mannix), Claude Akins and Guy Williams (Zorro).
