Arte Johnson as the escaped convict
18 March 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"For Whom the Bell Tolls...and Tolls...and Tolls" marks the return of LAUGH-IN's Arte Johnson, this time as bungling ex con Morris Tinkler, who finds the Partridge residence the perfect hideout, due to the recent installation of a burglar alarm that repeatedly goes off by accident. The neighbors aren't exactly enamored of the family's 'new sound,' a gift from Reuben, whom Morris doesn't trust because he has 'beady eyes.' Morris tells them how he was the lookout for a robbery, and was the fall guy in a jailbreak, ignominiously dumped out of the getaway car. It's the game of 'Monopoly' (and the 'get out of jail free' card) that inspires him to make a clean break from his past, to once again 'play by the rules.' The featured song is the unreleased "Sunshine Eyes," composed by Terry Cashman and T. P. West, joined by Morris on mean harmonica.
