Jackpot for Kojak and Wallach
16 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

This opening episode for Kojak's third season boasts a really strong cast with the Kojak regulars and such people as Eli Wallach, Jerry Orbach, F. Murray Abraham, Michael V. Gazzo and Jennifer Warren. The focus of the story is on Wallach who is an old friend from Astoria of Kojak.

Wallach got himself jammed up when he hid some stolen furs from a robbery in his place in the garment district. But Telly Savalas also got jammed a bit because he didn't wait for a warrant. Jennifer Warren as Wallach's lawyer is ready to pounce.

But it all might get worked out through the Feds as Jerry Orbach who is totally unrecognizable with black hair and one of the stupidest looking mustaches ever would like to use Wallach to make a case against loan shark Michael V. Gazzo. Savalas approaches Wallach and he's set up and has to go through some real terror at the hands of Gazzo's enforcer F. Murray Abraham.

In fact Wallach, Abraham, and Gazzo all give performances that could have been Emmy material. This was a really fine beginning for Kojak's third season.
