Abe Hirsch: I know you've worked and waited a long time to get Leopold, that's common knowledge.
Joe Dubbs: I'm not so sure a man like Leopold or what he represents is common knowledge, Abe, I'm not sure at all. Oh you think you know, the man in the street thinks he knows, but what is Leopold? A racketeer, a part of organized crime? Those are only labels, he's more than that and what he does is more dangerous, more subtle, more deadly. He's got money, it's easy for him to corrupt a public official like Deaver Wallace...

Worth the effort of popping it in your DVD player
11 December 2005 | by (The Man-Cave) – See all my reviews

1973's Incident On a Dark Street has probably not aged well in the 32 years since it's airing on, I'm guessing, NBC. Unlike myself, a child of the 70's, younger viewers might not enjoy the common reference points of wide lapels, land barges, and over-coiffed hair. The cast is chock full of familiar television faces with everyone doing a professional job, but the young un's might cringe at all the young farts who are now old or dead farts.

Yet, there are enough twists and turns in the plotting, adequate to very good performances (check out Kathleen Lloyd's face as she quietly, with dignity lets an assistant US attorney know what's in her future), and avoidance of relentless shoot-em-ups to make you take this old, failed pilot for a series seriously (although the attack on one character by an assassin in a street-sweeper is ludicrous and the bombing of the same guy later on is pretty nauseating, considering you see a shower of blood and gunk go kersplash!).

So, plunk down your buck the next time you're in the check out aisle at Wal-Mart. You might just figure you got a rebate
