    Gotta love those big-*ss 70s cars! I love how the FBI man picks up the evidence (cigarette butt) with his bare hands. Wouldn’t see that today.

    I remember a funny line from “The Benny Hill Show” : “The parents of Efrem Zimalist Jr. had no imagination.”

      Something about that name: Efrem Zimbalist Jr. – and the serious announcer who would say it – makes it stick in the mind.
