Quotes

Maximillian Coyne: [pointing at Buz] Look at him, just look at him. Why that pizzazz is just oozing from every pore.
Tod Stiles: [as Tod and Buz get in the car to leave] Excuse me.
Maximillian Coyne: Where, where are you going?
Tod Stiles: [about Buz] I got to rush him to the hospital so they can close his pores because if he loses too much pizzazz, he goes right into shock.

Has Its Moments
31 October 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

This episode has charming moments, despite being a stretch at times. Plus, the boys are shown as not being above some fast talking of their own when tacky promoter Coyne (Wynn) hires them for his traveling beauty contest. Coyne promises winners a spot in the movies, but studios ignore his overtures. So, just how much of a con-man is he. Needless to say, the 60-minutes smooths out many rough edges.

That opening pool hall sequence is a grabber since we wonder who's hustling whom. Good to see Lois Nettleton (the waitress) again after so many years. Her career specialized in plain Jane parts as she does here. Nonetheless, her little disclosure about what's its like being a plain girl in a small town is poignant. Series heavyweight Silliphant did the screenplay, including some good throwaway lines—Todd ogling one of the girls, saying he likes not just bar-be- que, but good ribs generally. Bob Altman directs with a generally light touch, even if Todd gets a slam-bang massage from heck. Note too, the every-day sidewalk scene that could only be done on location and not in Hollywood. All in all, another entertaining entry from an outstanding series.
