Don Rickles in the title role
19 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Kidnapper" opens with a ransom note demanding $10,000 for the safe return of a missing Mrs. Howell, which her husband willingly parts with. Next he demands $20,000 for Mary Ann, then $30,000 for Ginger. The Skipper proves too big to kidnap, the culprit revealed to be Norbett Wiley (Don Rickles), who confesses to a life of crime because he's unable to resist the temptation. The Professor remains wary of his many stories, though the others succumb to his outward charm. Eventually he gains his freedom, only to steal everyone blind during his welcome back to society party. Masterful comedian Don Rickles, also a fine actor, was the perfect choice for the kidnapper, but the laughs aren't so plentiful.
