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

Exciting Kojak Episode
3 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Harrison Page, who starred as the taunted Niles in Russ Meyer's Vixen!, here plays Hawthorn Yantzee, an innocent black man framed by a racketeer for the shooting of a politician.

Kojak becomes convinced that something is fishy and does his best to exonerate the suspect, but has to contend with racial anti-police bias to get Yantzee to cooperate. Meanwhile, Capt. McNeil and others think the lollipop man is on the wrong track and pressure him to settle for Yantzee.

This is an above average Kojak episode with some taut moments as it progresses. It's unfortunate that it ends with one of the worst puns ever uttered on television.
