    Ripcord was a syndicated series in the early 1960s about two men who ran a skydiving school and also used their skydiving skills to help fight crime. Ken Curtis was one, and the other was Larry Pennell, who was a familiar face on television in the 60s-70s, including a recurring role on The Beverly Hillbillies. He was also a guest on two episodes of Gunsmoke, #462 Mr. Sam'l, and #608 Trail Of Bloodshed. It has an entry on TV.com, but the episode summaries are empty, I guess because it's a fairly obscure series. Too bad. It sounds interesting.
