Down Memory Lane

The Long, Long Ride episode from the second season of Peter Gunn is a treat for nostalgia buffs, as it evokes the gangster films of the past in its storyline of a mob boss, just released from prison, who seems to be on someone's hit list. There are echoes of the then popular The Untouchables TV series in this one; and it's fun to see veteran movie bad guy Robert Wilkie has the plum role of the Mr. Big, and he plays it well.

Also in the cast is Elisha Cook, Jr., an actor for whose personality the word furtive might have been invented. He plays a member of what looks like a knockoff of a Salvation Army band, and his character is crucial to the story, not just his usual little guy on the sidelines. He even gets to sing a little. The dialog in this one is quite good, and the atmosphere is, as usual for this series, dark. The L.A. of Peter Gunn was nearly always a city of night.
