Was this really necessary?
6 February 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"The Frame" is the sort of mission on "Mission: Impossible" that is enjoyable to watch but which doesn't make a lot of sense if you think about it--and the same was true of all the mobster missions. The team wants to destroy a mob boss, Jack Wellman (Simon Oakland), as Wellman has recently had some congressmen killed! So why don't they just shoot Wellman?! A bullet to the head and there would be no need for more of a mission--and all the mobster missions could have been handled this way. However, in typical fashion, they construct an extremely difficult to execute plan and arrange it so that the mobster is killed by his own. All in all, quite enjoyable if you don't question the need for this sort of mission in the first place.

By the way, Arthur Batanides was very nice in his role as 'Tino'. He sure looked scared--which was very appropriate for his character. Plus, it was nice to see him play a good guy as most of the time in the 60s and 70s, he played baddies.
