Solid performances and a quasi-"Fugitive" like plot elevates this episode
20 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

David Janssen, who ran for his life for years on "The Fugitive", must have been relieved to see this episode of "Harry O" get wrapped up so quickly! Janssen is framed for murder by a blackmailer posing as Harry Orwell, and the evidence against him is pretty damning. Even perky neighbor Farrah Fawcett-Majors can't vouch for Harry. Lesley Ann Warren (billed as simply Lesley Warren) doesn't have a very juicy role as a pawn in the crime--she's just there to be duped--but she looks great in her short pixie hairdo and bell-bottom jeans. Anthony Zerbe, as always, is amiably tough as the police lieutenant, and Farrah...well, she's got more hair than all the other actors combined (and then some). It's too much hair even for 1975, although Fawcett has a good acting scene with Zerbe and gives her one-dimensional character some real guts. Janssen never overdoes a scene, and in fact his laid-back nature probably cost him in terms of a superstar TV career, but he's just right for this type of dry, straightforward writing. The series is too dark, with rooms going half-lit and the colors mostly brown & beige. Visually it isn't an eyesore, though it is awfully drab.
