P.S One of the major reason in watching this "Kojak" episode is the appearance of former NFL defensive back Roosevelt "Rosey" Grier as the 6 foot 6 inch 260 pound bounty hunter Salathiel-Or Sal for short-Harms. Grier just came off staring in the bad movie classic "The Thing With Two Head" that was to immortalize him in the world of bad movie history as well as him being one of the men together with Olympic gold medal winner Rafer Johnson who disarmed RFK-Bobby Kennedy-assassin Sirhan Sirhan. That's after Sirhan blew Bobby away at the kitchen area of L.A Ambassador Hotel in June 1968.
