By season 2, Starsky and Hutch was starting to get its bearings and this is one of the finer episodes of the year, I think.. What's interesting is that it bears a striking resemblance to what happened in real life to 1920s actor Fatty Arbuckle, and how the public never forgave him even though it was never proved that he was guilty.

In this S&H episode, however, an actor with a similar fate as Fatty retaliates by killing off one by one his fellow actors and former friends and our two heroes need to find out who it is.. David Soul is at his best when they give him a bit part in the movie they are filming and his nervous and awkward antics are extremely funny.

The episode features superb performances by veteran actors Rory Calhoun (who has aged considerably since hunting Gilligan on the island 10 years earlier), Chuck McCann, a very young Jeff Goldblum, and even an appearance by Read Morgan who you might remember as the down on his luck baseball player in the 1959 Twilight Zone episode, "What You Need."
