All professionals start as amateurs
24 January 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

All professional crooks start out as amateurs and they lose their amateur status if they have the right stuff which includes avoiding cops like Theo Kojak. This particular gang which includes some solid citizens like Philip Bruns and Wil Albert have it go wrong from the beginning.

They go into the jewelry heist business, but the delivery guy was being tailed by the Manhattan South Squad on a tip. The exchange is being made at a church bazaar and the Manhattan South Squad busts in and the shooting starts. It all goes downhill after that, for the pros as well as the amateurs.

Roger Robinson makes one of his appearances as Detective Gil Weaver and it turns out the middle man was a high school friend played by John A. Watson. He tries to bribe Weaver to get the gems back, but Weaver being the good cop he is reports to Telly Savalas and then gets the disagreeable job of using his friend as bait to get the others involved.

Of course it troubles Robinson and he and Watson as the luckless friend from Erasmus High School highlight this fine Kojak episode.
