Evan Tanner. Bernie Rhodenbarr. Matthew Scudder. Chip Harrison. I had never counted all of his and very close to taking the lead at 56.
Well, I didn’t vote for you.
Strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger.
That makes me very angry.
Panorama of the Mississippi. Made him a rich man. I know these panoramas from “All Pieces of a River Shore” by R.A. Lafferty.
Later on this-TV. Directed by Michael Winner. This is a weird one. WWII, Oliver Reed, an elephant, and Bavarian scenery. And Michael J. Pollard is the hero. That’s actually on the poster art. Becomes a standard WWII action film in the second half, but the first is pretty original.
Had a farm.

On this-TV this afternoon 3-5/4-6 depending on location. Worth seeing. Saturday afternoon action was a staple of my movie watching growing up. Southern Siding sponsored a movie with Archie Manning hosting.
1973-74 NBC. DePatie-Freleng Enterprises. Pink Panther and Friends. 17 episodes.
Library Blu-ray that was nice. Another one of those movies I enjoyed as an ABC Sunday Night Movie as a kid. Probably underrated as far as tops of the 70s goes. Great all around. Recommended.
Directed by Stuart Rosenberg. Walter Matthau, Bruce Dern. From the Wahloo/Sjowall book. I watched this again recently. The book is very good. The adaptation is odd but works somehow. Sweden becomes San Francisco.
It didn’t originally mean T & A, but it slowly and surely moved in that direction. 1943 header.
