Good Friday?

This movie's so bitter and black,
The jolliest character's Jack.
On "Dragnet", that's him
All stoic and grim --
The sort who'd give Wilder a whack.

Donald B. Benson

Famous for playing Sgt. Joe Friday on Dragnet, Jack Webb is assistant director Artie Green in Billy Wilder's Sunset Boulevard (1950).

It's a very weird thing to see Jack smiling.

Or to show any emotion at all.
