This episode is full of jive talk of the late '50s. The ironic thing is, many of the words are still being used today frequently, like "like" where it shouldn't be and "cool," which never seems to go out of style.
No, "crazy" means "cool," too, but is one of the expressions not used in years. Anyway, this story involves jazz musicians so you get a lot of the hip lingo. "Streetcar Jones" sounds a lot like "Maynard G. Krebs," if you're old enough to remember him, too.
"Streetcar" is the prime suspect of a murder of a fellow jazz artist. The victim was not well-liked by any of his peers, though, so the killer could be anyone. However, since he didn't up a struggle, the guess is that he's a fellow musician, someone he wouldn't turn his back on. I don't want to ruin it by saying how it exactly was, or even if it was a musician.
Leigh Whipper was fun to watch as the goateed jazzman "Lodi," This was his last acting role. The man was 82 years old when he played this part!! He came close to living 100 years.
Carlo Fiore, who played "Streetcar," had a limited career and had drug problems for decades. This role was perfect for him. For a guy with such a short acting career, he has a long and interesting biography here on IMDb.
Suffice to say this a fun episode to both hear and see. Ya "dig?"
