Trivia

In the bar the Seagram Gin sign is partially obscured (so that only "agra" is visible) so as to not actually advertise the product. At that time it was illegal to advertise liquor in most States. See more »

Goofs

After McCloud leaves Mrs. White he talks to Joe before they walk into the elevator. The floor is visible in the shot and there is no break in the floor, revealing that it's really just another room with a sliding door and not a real elevator. See more »

Quotes

Sam McCloud: Yeah, well, you're not exactly listed in the phone book as a tourist attraction, Mr. Faraday, you know, I wouldn't have found you myself except we got a nice fat file on you.

Country boy can't be that naive
7 April 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I couldn't quite buy Bo Svenson's country boy act as the ex-football player doing collections out in Ohio for mobster Robert Webber. I also couldn't buy Webber not paying someone who was ostensibly an employee. Bad for business and definitely with a guy like Svenson you don't want him mad at you.

Anyway he steals Vincent Gardenia's car and heads for New York. Gardenia was his immediate boss puts out a report his car was stolen and heading for the Big Apple.

I will say though that Stefanie Powers as a hard hearted street girl was quite a change in cast. Stefanie usually such a goody goody. Highlight of the episode for me was Dennis Weaver gaining the confidence of Svenson's mother played wonderfully by Joan Blondell.
