Goofs

In the opening scene, we see a blue van in a driveway behind a station wagon and an armored car. Kojak and Crocker then arrive and park their vehicle in an alcove at an angle behind the blue van. When the art thieves make their escape moments later, they are shown pulling away in the blue van which now has nothing in front of it. Kojak and Crocker emerge behind them and get into their car which is now parked directly behind where the van was facing straight ahead. See more »

Quotes

Lt. Theo Kojak: Frank, I got it. Here, look.
[Without explanation, he holds up his handkerchief and sets it on fire]
Capt. Frank McNeil: [Dryly] Ah, yeah - handkerchief flambé. "Are you under a strain, Theo?" "No, Captain. I'm fine."

13 February 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One of the best Kojak episodes has Telly Savalas working with master criminologist David Opatoshu to solve the theft of some valuable Rembrandt sketches on display at Susan Sullivan's gallery, donated by patron Ben Hammer.

Sullivan is Kojak's current flame at the moment and he and Kevin Dobson just happen to be there when a robbery goes down. They give chase to the two thieves and arrest them, but no Rembrandts.

Hammer not satisfied with the work of Kojak and Crocker hires Opatoshu to recover the sketches. Rumor has it that Opatoshu operates the way Simon Templar does and with Templar's reputation for playing both sides of the law. That disappoints Savalas, but Opatoshu tells him that whomever hires him will get justice.

Opatoshu has one unorthodox style of operating, but the man gets results. His character was so good I wish it had been given a series of his own.

One of the best Kojak episodes ever.
