RIP Dirk Rambo
29 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While much has been made of 43-year old Virginia Vincent trying to pull off being an insecure 29-year old with a horrible hairdo, this episode is notable for being Dirk Rambo's last acting role (as Fred Tillar). This episode was shot sometime during the fall of '66--- the resurrected series' first season in color, which had a strange softening effect compared to the 50's B&W version. Dirk would be killed by a drunk driver on February 7, 1967 (devestating his twin brother Dack) and this effort would air shortly after his death. We can speculate all we want about Dirk's career chances in the business. He had model-good looks but his acting resume was severely limited and here he gives off a pretty vacant 1000-yard stare while delivering lines dissing the theft attraction qualities of 1950's Cadillac convertibles (my how the collector car market has changed). This episode devotes a lot of energy on Vincent's relationship with her teenage hooligan husband, which demonstrates the writers were trying. Webb was a cheapskate producer: stock exterior shots, sparse sets, off-the-rack wardrobe budget (Friday and Gannon wore the same suits over entire seasons!) and his use of a relatively small stock company--- unusual for a show like this--- indicates he was a steady scale-level employer. R.I.P. Dirk.
