Did You Know?


When Detective Brenner goes on a rampage and knocks over three lamps in his hotel room with a chair, the light bulbs in the first two go out after the lamp is hit and strewn across the room (i.e., as it should have). The light bulb in the third lamp, however, goes out a split second before the thrown chair actually hits the lamp--meaning somebody turned the power off of the lamp prior to the chair's impact.

I am fairly disappointed by this so predictable and unusual scheme of a disappearing kid. Except the presence of Scott Brady, Joan Blondell and Elisha Cook, nothing, I mean nothing worth in this tale. If you like cops stories in the LA vicinity, with all details that may mean, the police force investigating and so on, you won't be disappointed as I was. Robert Forster is OK, I admit it.

I am ready to deal with such other kinds of scheme in this TV show, adapted from Joseph Wambaugh. I am always glad to watch Elisha Cook with his anguished eyes. Here, he plays o sort of modern sorcerer, who is supposed to tell the cops where the little boy is hidden, and this by using a water diviner stick...
