  • Kent McCord pre Adam 12 and some history / observations.

    10
    It was great to see Kent in an early show prior to his break out with Adam 12, where he stared with great success for move then 5 years and 175 episodes as Jim Reed. I recognized that very handsome man the second he stopped and dismounted at the crash scene. Wonderful film trivia of a great actor with a long wonderful career in TV and the Industry including a long outstanding work at SAG [Screen Actors Guild, of which he was its president for years].



    One thing in following his career with profound interest is that I have never seen him shirtless, there was on scene where he was slightly injured and all we saw was a side view as he put his shirt back on - Kent had a remarkable physique and very handsome face but it was like he wanted no one to see that he also had a handsome hunk-ed hairy chest.moreless
  • The Chief loses out on a bet but catches a thief.

    8.7
    After it's feature-length pilot, "Ironside" settles into the hour-long format with this nicely plotted mystery about a racetrack heist and money that seems to vanish into thin air.



    The writers of this episode do a good job of constructing a mystery that doesn't require car chases and shoot-outs; in fact, the real puzzle occurs AFTER the supposed culprit is killed. It becomes an elaborate, almost "locked room" mystery and it's an ideal situation for Ironside to operate. James Gregory, that great character actor (to me, he'll always be Sen. Iselin, the puppet husband of Angela Lansbury in "The Manchurian Candidate") shows up here, and the whole episode is capped off by a dimly lit showdown on an abandoned boat.moreless

    • Ironside: Let's cut the malarkey. Al is your security man. I worked with him once, I guess I can now.
      Herb Jarman: Aah.
      Ironside: How much? How much money you folks missing? Look, I'm supposed to know things people haven't told me yet. Now, you turn on your trouble light, your security chief shanghais me in here; that means crime. Crime at a race track usually means money. Of course if you've changed you minds, if you don't want to tell me...
      Herb Jarman: $175,000.
      Ironside: That's better than they tapped you for a year ago.
