"JOHNNY STACCATO" - jazz and crime drama at its early best
4 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Despite Cassavetes' sometimes intense acting style (or maybe because of it), "JOHNNY STACCATO" was easily one of my favorite TV shows of the late 50s, early 60s. It had a dark-haired, bedroom-eyed, brooding hero and it had jazz - really GOOD jazz, sometimes even great jazz by big names like Pete Condoli and Ray Brown and Mel Lewis (the latter two would later form one-half of the MJQ). East coast jazz mixed with private eyes was a popular theme in that black and white era (think "PETER GUNN" and "FIVE FINGER EXERCISE" with David Hedison and Luciana somebody as his OTT Italian girlfriend). STACCATO didn't last more than one year but it was well-written, beautifully shot, and certainly caught the zeitgeist in its web. There is even one episode that starred a young Mary Tyler Moore. Get a copy on CD or video and prepare to be impressed.
