The actor who played the used car salesman was really hurt when he got roughed up by Timothy Carey. As a direct result of this, said actor sued the producers of the show through the Screen Actors' Guild. See more »
Don't miss it for Timothy Carey's outstanding performance.
A daring heist is pulled against a great jewelery store, at night, with the use of a cutting torch, but unfortunately the night watch man is killed by the gangsters. One of them is played by the always impressive Timothy Carey, who is here more terrific as usual. So crazy, so lunatic...A role that fits him like a suit, especially when you know how he was in real life. Look out the sequence where he beats the car salesman, look at Carey's face and overall attitude. I guess he was really himself here, and read the trivia comment, where it is said that the actor who plays the salesman sued Carey for hurting him, actually hurting him, I mean. And not only faking. I am not so surprised. and let's not forget Chuck Durning, who is under employed here, he should have a better character in such a series. He is only a sub character. I like him in the snooker game scene against Baretta. And also, don't miss the short sequence when Baretta's pet, the parrot, lifts the phone receiver before asking :"Allo"...So cute !!!! It's at the twenty ninth minute.
