One more worth Cannon episode

It's always a real pleasure to Watch Canon épisodes. I really like this fat detective, he is so...I can't find the words to mean what I actually feel. Maybe because it seems so unrealistic.

Anyway, in this episode he has to struggle against an evil character, played one more time by the exquisite - and unfortunately so unknown - Mitch Ryan, whom he has already been against in other episode(s). I also find real pleasure to appreciate this actor's performances. I think of him in MONTE WALSH, that's where I discovered him. A great character for a great western. Ryan has an impressive physique, a perfect charismatic and tough, rough face. He should have been more enhanced in films or series. I would imagine him as a series lead character, so was Mike Connors in Mannix, for instance.

This very episode is also interesting, because there is no real boundary between evil and good characters. At the beginning, Ryan and Ralph Meeker are on a yacht, in the middle of the sea, and then, after a short argument, Ryan throws Meeker overboard and the yacht goes away. And a little later, Meeker - who has survived from the ocean - comes back to get revenge. In the mean time, you watch Ryan as the good father seeking some protection for is "daughter", and as you can guess he asks our fat private eye...

I won't tell you further, but this episode is really Worth watching.

Directed by William Wiard, the TOM HORN film maker.
