Colonel Archie Dittman is a big-game hunter obsessed with hunting and constantly frustrated that his mild-mannered son has yet to catch his father's enthusiasm for the sport. So Archie makes an ultimatum: either his son goes on a hunt and makes a "clean kill" or gets cut off without a cent. Written by Anonymous

4 July 2006 | by (Sunshine State) – See all my reviews

This is one of my absolute favorites. How often have you heard the expression "be careful for what you wish". This episode perfectly summarizes that sentiment. It has served me well, over the years, and as far as heavy handed lessons go, this one was worth watching. I love how the tide turns, and then turns again, for the protagonist, Godfrey Cambridge - one of the comedic greats.

Also see him is the Watermelon Man, Cotton Comes to Harlem (an awesome flick) and Come Back Charleston Blue. I give it a ten of ten, because, though I have only seen it once, it left me with a an indelible memory.

Feel free to let me know if you agree or disagree.
