Don't mess with the big man
15 January 2020 | by shaksprynSee all my reviews

Sharp, hard-hitting episode with lots of gunplay. Younger viewers may not be aware, but in the mid-1960's-early 1970's public groups did a big lobbying campaign to reduce violence in TV shows. This had a major impact on detective shows among others. But this episode of Cannon goes by the old rules. Frank's snub-nose .38 gets lots of use! Recommended, especially if you like plenty of action.
