Heather Menzies Comes Down on Dragnet

Heather Menzies bums a trip on DRAGNET 1967

Actress: HEATHER MENZIES Known for: THE SOUND OF MUSIC Project: DRAGNET 1967 Year: Take a Wild Guess Episode: The LSD Story Genre: Crime Character: Edna Mae Dixon Traits: In the pilot episode of DRAGNET 1967, where the two straight-laced cops from the 1950’s seem awkwardly time-warped into the psychedelic 60’s, a young man who paints his face and eats dirt is a dealer of LSD, which is, according to this episode REEFER MADNESS style episode, a real killer… And Heather Menzies plays Edna Mae, who, with her more talky friend, is coming down off a bad trip sold by “Blue Boy,” who Officers Friday and Gannon are out to bust. The Best Part: Seeing the very cute Heather, who was around 17 but her character’s 14, in the light of the police station, because in most of the exterior shots on the streets of L.A., her face is covered by a shadow. And her character tells the cops that there’s a party going on, somewhere in the “hills”… obviously alive with the sound of music, and colors, and beyond. You Missed: Heather worked on many shows during this era, but this episode is really truly worth checking out for dated hilarity. Media: Skull Island Surfer First First Dragnet 1967 Episode Reviews.
