Something made me startle here
23 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

See for yourself, this story named THE GAUNTLET and speaking of the police force escorting a witness woman to the trial of a mobster, doesn't that sound familiar to you? Well, I don't know concerning you, but me, YES, I rapidly thought of Clint Eastwood's movie, made a couple of years later and speaking of the very same - at least very similar - scheme and with the very SAME title...

I already know that no one movie nor TV series buff has seen this episode, at least recently, because this is so obvious !!!

That said, this episode is very well paced, very in the seventies way of showing such topics. I would say it is flawless...Anyway, I far better appreciate this episode than the Eastwood's one. The relationship between Jack Palance and the woman whom he is in charge to protect is very moving.

The screen writers for both features are not the same, I assure you. So, I wonder how the hell did they take the same title for the same scheme. Do they think the audiences are dumb or what?

I am astounding.
