Some Dragnet - Great Gildersleeve trivia

Barton Yarborough, who played Friday's partner Ben Romero, died suddenly on December 19, 1951.

The trivia begins with the eventual replacement: Ben Alexander, who didn't take over until about 8 months later.

Alexander was suggested to Jack Webb by Cliff Arquette, who had worked with Alexander on the Great Gildersleeve show.
