it was suggested in the trivia section that this pilot movie was doomed to failure because of the casting of a middle-aged Glen Ford, rather than a younger and sexier stud-muffin. well, i don't think sooooo.
possible spoiler: there is only one plot device used- that of the ole' switch-the-real-art-work-with-a-clever-forgery routine. normally, i wouldn't consider the last statement a possible spoiler, but since there was only one device used, maybe it qualified.
the final big mass fight scene was as ridiculous as the fights in the old batman series- pushing, shoving, pulling back before the punch lands, but the worst (or the best i suppose) is when the claw-handed guy (yes, there is even one of these) takes a swing at mr. ford, who blocks it with, yes johnny, it's an electric toaster!! as claw-man spazzes on the ground, ford starts to run off, but wheels back and says, 'i hope you like your claw crispy'.
no, it wasn't the leading man's age that doomed this turkey.
anthony quayle was kind of fun, though.
