Goofs

For some reason the Police didn't trace the phone call from General Delivery back to Telly Savalas' place. This is especially obvious since later when Westcott makes a phone call from a phone booth, the detective says he didn't call from his home for fear of it being traced. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Flagstone: Well, here, two hundred thousand dollars. A million dollars before taxes. If it isn't the government, it's kidnappers.

good plot, OK production.
24 June 2013 | by (French Polynesia) – See all my reviews

It's pretty much an out and out comedy, not all that funny but the story twists keep it lively and amusing. McGavin and Savalas were, of course, soon to be TV stars in their own right. Both kind of do what you'd expect but the story robs them of any direct conflict which is too bad as it'd be fun to see them react off each other.

Show has a pretty dated and obnoxious 60's comedy music score, that seems to be pieced together from the music library. Does feature a fair amount of on location scenes, including one where you can see that it's raining for real in a scene--this helps keep the show moving.

Savalas gang scenes aren't really convincing, as the dumb stooge guys just aren't very funny. McGavin is more successful in his blustering scenes.

Police elements are treated fairly seriously which seems odd in this context and the ending of the show is too abrupt, the real pay off being left off camera.
