Did You Know?


The revolver Carlton uses at the end is a target variant of the Colt Peacemaker called the Bisley, named for the well-known shooting match in England where it made its debut. It is a fairly rare piece today. See more »


Carlton calls the revolver he shows to Magnum a "Colt .45, vintage 1860." The revolver he picks up is a Colt Bisley, not made until thirty-four years later, in 1894. In 1860, Colt made only percussion revolvers, not ones which would chamber metallic cartridges like the Bisley. See more »


Jonathan Quayle Higgins III: [Magnum is "playing" the saxophone] Magnum... Magnum!... Magnum!
Thomas Sullivan Magnum, IV: Hi, Higgins!
Jonathan Quayle Higgins III: How fiendishly deceptive of you, Magnum. I could have sworn I was hearing the emasculation of a large rodent. To my great surprise, I see the sounds are emanating from what I thought was a harmless musical instrument.
Thomas Sullivan Magnum, IV: Cute, Higgins, real cute.

Jonathan Quayle Higgins III: Why, Magnum? Why do this terrible thing?

Jonathan Quayle Higgins III: Well, how many sax...

Pitts Special engine Start
6 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As usual, this episode was an excellent example of the Magnum genre. I had seen the series in my younger days, and replays on cable renewed my interest and appreciation for this excellent series. It is a gem in our television treasure troth!

As the former owner of a 1946 Aeronca Chief Prop Start airplane, I watched closely when the Pitts Special used in the opening flight sequence was started. A fellow pulled the prop as if to "prop start" the engine, then there was the distinct sound of an a starter engaging and the engine starting. In other words, it looks like the prop start part was either for effect or there was a mag problem with the engine where it required a pull through for the starter to engage. Did anyone else notice this??

George Dean,
