    Admired Ruth Roman's Riva. She was a strong woman but, unfortunately, a little too greedy and vain. The performances are uniformly good and, for a brief moment, we see Cinnamon ... NOT beautiful! That's a shocker right there. But her reintroduction as the ever elegant and lovely reporter is impressive. Well done.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • When Willy and Barney are watching the opening of the safe with the camera with the remote-controlled zoom lens the shot of the second and third numbers of the combination are shown at an angle compared to the first number which is impossible since the camera hasn't moved.

    • When Willy replaces the duplex wall outlet the right outlet is clearly upside down with the ground at the top. Moments later when Willy replaces the plug both outlets are correctly positioned with the ground at the bottom.

    • Trivia: Jim gets his briefing in a theater, with a larger reel-to-reel tape.
