The searchers

Jack_webb_30
The stats for my blog allow me to see the search terms people use to
reach the Daily Mirror. I never realized there were so many people
interested in Mickey Cohen. There are quite a few false hits and some
interesting queries.

To the person researching Jack Webb’s "-30-":
Despite what you may have read or heard, the movie was not filmed in
the Examiner Building (this was lore for many years at The Times among
former Her-Exers). Webb built an exact duplicate on a sound stage. He
did this for "Dragnet" too.

To the person researching Gamblers Anonymous: I hope you found what you needed.

And to whoever is researching "little girl lost intestines in swimming pool"–I am at a loss for words.

At right, the VHS box for "-30-" Kids! Don’t Play Here!
