I'm planning on watching The D.I. soon and I ran across this (each links to giagundo versions):
a touch of kismet after meeting James Ellroy (who has employed and appreciated Jack Webb at different times in his career) last week.
I love the use of clipped sentences a la Jack's show, and the old Confidential Magazine modus opperandi of giving real addresses and license plate numbers. No wonder they got in trouble.
Anyway, I also found this weird quintessentially Jack Webb trailer for the DI where he uses more of his stylistically low budgetude to intro the film - without any actual clips:
