Retired, witty, dapper Colonel Humphrey Flack and his partner in crime, Uthas P. Garvey, also known as Patsy, team up to play modern-day Robin Hoods around the world. Conning the con men wherever they find them, the two men change their clever tactics as often as they change locales, giving their proceeds to the needy but retaining a percentage for themselves, of course, to "cover expenses."

Very funny series
24 November 2006 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

The fabulous Colonel Humphrey Flack was the great character actor Alan Mowbray and his sidekick or Aid de Camp was one of most under-appreciated character actors that popped up in all kinds of TV roles, e.g., a chief petty officer in Navy Log to Movies, a crook in a Dagwood and Blondie movie. His ski jump nose and round eyes between and over jutting cheek bones made his mobile face perfect for being the fall guy, as the huckster in Friendly Persuasion to the long suffering assistant to a good-hearted con-man in the series under review. Mowbray, one of Hollywood's well-known studio character actors, was delightful as the smooth-talking gritter who could turn a mark and leave town before the bad guys knew what happened to them. These two seasoned actors seemed to have a lot of fun in bringing their roles to the glass screen and it's a pity these old series are not available for old codgers like myself to check out. I seriously doubt if the young people of today would find the antics of these two wonderful impersonators as funny as we did back then.
