Raymond Burr plays Carlton Duffy (uncredited)
17 January 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Carlton Duffy is credited at the end as playing himself but it is obviously Burr is a dodgy grey wig, dodgy grey beard and dodgy Irish accent.

The give-away is the extended vowels and deep voice - pure Raymond Burr.

It is not a credit to his acting ability.

In the story, Ironside then impersonates Duffy to decoy a murderer - not a great stretch!

Of course the special effects guys get to put them in the same room together;

  • that is the most impressive bit of the whole operation
