Trivia

While it may seem like a sick joke showing LaSalle eating out of a can of dog food, this was actually inspired by a national scandal (instigated by a report on 60 Minutes (1968)) that elderly people, because of the effect of high inflation on their retirement incomes, weren't able to afford decent food and were therefore resorting to eating pet food. Congress ended up mandating automatic yearly increases in Social Security (and other Federal programs) to help alleviate this problem. See more »

Goofs

LaSalle keeps a framed copy of a commendation letter from J. Edgar Hoover, dated February 12, 1931 and on Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) letterhead. However, in 1931 the organization was simply known as the Bureau of Investigation. It would go through several name changes before being finally renamed the Federal Bureau of Investigation in 1935.

Great episode
17 November 2013 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Sorry, but this isn't so much a review - but a reply to stones78.

I really enjoyed your review. And having seen some of these episodes first run - I just wanted to make this comment: the old detective living on dog food is a reference to many, many stories throughout the 70's about elderly people on Soc. Sec. having to live on dog food to make ends meet, as it was cheap. They make a mention of the detective not being left with much. It also is why dog and cat food are mandated to be "human-grade".

I mention this, as one of the things that I love about these old shows is, they aren't just entertaining, they can also be a real time-capsule of the social and economic issues of the time.

Anyway - you provided a great review and you were completely correct about the ending, with the "old-geezers" partaking their knowledge on the young guys - it really made the episode.
