Storyline

If you were falsely arrested for a crime, who would you trust? The cops or a friend who bails you out of jail? When small time criminal Hawthorn Yantzee is suspected of murder, Kojak is convinced that he was framed and tries to find the real culprit. Yantzee doesn't cooperate as he thinks that his new 'friend' Stutz (the one actually responsible for the murder and the frame) will help him. When he discovers Stutz's real plans, Yantzee allows Kojak to send him to Stutz's flat with a wire on, hoping to get conclusive testimony that will clear him. Written by jeaneva

Attitudes & Justice
19 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An innocent (but still hostile) man gets charged with murder. It looks like an open-and-shut case....but, of course, it isn't.

"Hawthorn Yantzee" (Harrison Page) is in the wrong spot at the wrong time after "Stutz" (Roger Mosley) killed a corrupt politician. "Yantzee" makes it worse for himself by running away, and then later doing the same. For an innocent guy, he sure does a lot of stupid things that don't help his cause.

He's lucky he has his girlfriend "Lula" (Margaret Avery) and a tough-skinned detective ("Kojak") who endures racial slants and bad attitudes and only cares about justice.

It's a good episode with a good mix of drama, some humor and some action. I'm always amazed looking at these episodes 40 years after they were made. I remember in the wild hair and clothing of the period, of course, but I don't remember these ridiculously low, long and wide cars that Kojak and others raced down the city streets. I don't know who anyone with bad knees could ever get into our out of those low cars.
