A Professional Pool player suffers a career-ending injury
This 70's TV show was basically a medical version of the more successful show "The Mod Squad". Instead of young, hip policemen, we have young, hip doctors.
Mr. Frank Gorshin(of Batman's Riddler fame)guest-stars as a professional pool player who has one of his hands severed in an elevator accident. His very dramatic performance of the part easily made this the best episode of the entire series.
Deeply depressed now, he is maneuvered by our hero doctors into playing a game of pool against one of them. A challenging game, now with only one hand and a hook, but he wins. Forcing himself into finally considering the possibility that maybe his life isn't over after all.
A wonderful performance by a fine actor who deserved more credit and respect than he was given.
