From the Twitch Live Stage at New York Comic Con 2017, IMDb LIVE host Kevin Smith talks to Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada about the development of the Marvel franchise, his history at Comic Con and more.
A cowboy who has a specialty act at a local venue comes to Lt. Kirby for help in protecting his girlfriend who works at local night spot with a sharp-shooting act from a big stranger who has been following her. A theatrical agent friend of Kirby's referred the cowboy to him; this entertainment connection prompted the cowboy to say to Kirby "That's right, you used to be a hoofer before you ended up with the law." And of course, George Raft got his start as a dancer. Kirby visits the sharp shooting girlfriend in her apartment and she's practicing her sharp shooting! Kirby remarks "Don't the neighbors ever complain?" That's a good line but the whole scenario is ridiculous. Thereafter, Kirby finds the stalking stranger but is knocked unconscious; the stranger is later shot. Actually, except for the gun shooting in the apartment, this was a fun episode. I remember Rochelle Hudson from many B movies and from Rebel Without A Cause; Gordon Jones is an actor whose name and face I remember but not anything he appeared in unless I look at his filmography. Percy Helton, he of the raspy, unique voice had a beefy part in this episode as a blind song promoter. An entertaining episode.
