The best episode of Tightrope was this one.
13 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is beyond belief that someone else remembered this episode as every time I ever saw Mike, his performance in this episode of tightrope enthralled me and enchanted me with his on screen performance.

His line as he was dying on screen was, "It was like pulling a rabbit out of a hat," to Mike Connors character, in homage to his getting the drop on him and getting him in time.

I would give anything to see this episode along with the episode "Fast Gun" from NYPD with Jack Warden, Kevin Hooks and Frank Converse. Why won't someone make these available while us aficionados are still alive.

Oct 8, 2009 I finally got to see this episode of Tightrope again thanks the posters. It was stupendous to see that again. Absolutely hilarious, but cool too.

Mike Kellin's portrayal was classic, it was a cross between Sid Ceaser's imitation of a Jazz musician, reefer smoking hipster with a lisp and some gay flavored Liberace winks and mannerisms thrown in to boot to mix with his sadism as a hit man. Great original portrayal though, absolute classic episode.

Also saw the old Frank Converse, Robert Hooks and Jack Warden NYPD one which was great too with the fast draw artist taking on all comers, another great crazy guy performance.
