See this film: The Naked City @ the MFA

The urtext of the police procedurals that now dominate TV, Jules Dassin's noirish The Naked City (1948) employs pseudo-documentary techniques and on-location photography to chronicle the efforts of two New York City detectives (Barry Fitzgerald and Howard Duff) to solve a pair of murders. Still holds up, and then some, in this age of CSI.
