Trivia

When security guards pull over the moving van that transported the now-missing artwork to Boston, a street-side movie marquee advertises: "Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player" starring Elton John. It's the same marquee used for the cover photograph of the 'Don't Shoot Me I'm Only The Piano Player' album released on MCA Records, then another Universal division. See more »

Expensive art work disappears from a locked truck.
21 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

Artwork, valued at around $23 million, is placed in locked crates and loaded into a moving truck. When they arrive at their destination, all the artwork except for one $3 million dollar piece has vanished.

Banacek is called to investigate. The insurance company 'suits' don't like that Banacek has such a good recovery ratio. Banacek's going recovery rate is 10% of $23 million.

It's a good who-done-it, by not divulging anything before hand. Enjoyable to watch as the 'drama' unfolds.

This era of television is acceptable for the whole family to watch. There's no explicit language or revealing outfits.
