City Boys Go Out In The Wilds Of Nevada
16 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kojak out West? Yah, partner, that's what we get here in this different type of episode.

Theo and Frank wind up in a one-horse town a couple hundred miles from Reno, chasing down a NY thug ("Arnie Saxler") they need to testify to bring down a big crook. Saxler, played well by Vincent Baggetta, had fled to Nevada. He obviously didn't want any part of a court appearance. Can't blame him; testifying against a mob boss can't increase your chances of living a long life.

Anyway, we get the stereotypical story where the yahoos are hostile and the good city boys have to fight off the locals to accomplish what they want to do. Some of those scenes are little silly, but overall, it's still a very entertaining story. Judith Lowry is a hoot playing "Lily Weed." She was in her mid-80s when she played this role, and sadly, died the following year after this was aired.
