Episode Summary

EDIT
Harley and the Killer
AIRED:
B.J. calls a Purple Alert, when escaped murderer Herman J. Von Brock wants to kill Harley for helping to send him to prison. Stanley moves into Harley's home as a 24-hour guard, but a threatening note tossed from a speeding car sends the agents to Hal and Stanley's apartment. A bored Harley volunteers to do some work at the service station, where he is grabbed by the killer. Stanley and B.J. spot Von Brock's car from the air, but Stanley's power goes off. This time it's Barton J. Reed to the rescue as he tackles Von Brock and sits on the killer's chest until help arrives. Seldom has justice been meted out so cruelly on a 1960s sitcom.moreless

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Early in the episode, Von Brock tells Harley that he is in Washington for the singular purpose of killing him with his bare hands and has, in fact, been strengthening his hands for just such an opportunity. In the climactic scene, it's pretty apparent that Von Brock plans to kill him with a knife.

    • NOTES (1)

      • This ep also appears in The Pill Caper, so it has pretty much survived.
        Henry Brandon was a Hollywood fixture for decades. His earliest film role was as the evil Silas Barnaby in the Laurel & Hardy version of Babes In Toyland. At a 1986 convention of L&H buffs he talked about his appearance on Mr. Terrific, remembering how he drove the CBS legal department crazy. As the knife throwing Von Brock he had Paul Smith strapped to a large circus wheel and happily adlibbed a German folk song he'd learned as a child. Director Arnold loved it, but the lawyers went nuts trying to find out who wrote the song and who owned the rights.
