A claustrophobic noir
17 December 2012 | by (Venice CA) – See all my reviews

Interesting show. Cassavetes plays a hyperactive, high-strung jazz pianist who does good deeds on the side. In the premier show, he's engaged by a singer's manager ("Senator" Bly, based loosely on Presley's "Colonel" Tom Parker) to prevent a scandal sheet from publishing a damaging story about his charge (a youthful Michael Landon as a crooner). It has lots of gritty, noir shots of New York City (even though the interior shots were taped in LA). A couple of nice jazz tunes, played by some "cats" of the day. Ruta Lee, better known for the years she put in as a plug-in celebrity on various TV game shows, plays a flirtatious secretary. Only a half-hour show, the action is jammed in and it all ends rather quickly.
