Remake of Season 1 Episode
23 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watch "Naked City" fairly regularly and I knew I had seen this story before.

In Season 1 (30 min.), episode 38 this was entitled "The Canvas Bullet" with Harry Guardino and Diane Ladd in the Robert Duvall/Shirley Knight roles in this version. They kept all the same first names but changed the last names. I know a lot of people like the half-hour version better and for this story I agree. Although the acting is very good, it does seem a bit padded to fill the sixty minute time slot.

I was too young to see this show the first time around and I've never been lucky enough see it in syndication. Now thanks to ME-TV and RTV I can get my daily fill! Stirling Silliphant is a remarkable writer and I've always been a fan of his other great 60's show "Route 66." Love the great NYC location photography and plethora of famous faces -- past and future -- "Naked City" is a great show.
