Vincent Gardenia Stars
23 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was unique in that "Kojak" wasn't the main cop. No, that role was played by Vincent Gardenia, a well-known actor to those in the '70s. Gardenia played "Det. Vince LaGuardia." an ex-detective who moved to Las Vegas for his grandson's health (asthma).

The story involves Theo and the Mahattan South bureau when LaGuardia calls Kojak about a certain crook that was caught at the gambling tables. It turns out this guy was a big-time counterfeiter and it appears some big "job" is in the works here in Vegas.

There is quite a bit to this story which involves several interesting characters, one played by veteran actress Eileen MGovern. The loving relationship between LaGuardia and his grandson is also nice to see.

Overall, a very interesting episode and worth seeing.
