Did You Know?


Louis Quinn plays two roles: his regular character of Roscoe and a French bookie that Kookie runs into at Longchamps Racecourse. This is the second such foreign doppelganger mirroring that of a regular character, Edd Byrnes who had previously portrayed his regular character of Kookie, and a Chinese rickshaw driver with a comb/hair infatuation in Hong Kong.

Another creepy foray abroad
15 December 2017 | by BigSkyMaxSee all my reviews

Our heroes have a genuine French babe working in their own office but they don't even consider taking her to France to help them on a French case? Is this sexism, chauvinism, nationalism or just dummyism? And what's this hang-up the WB has with 17-year-old girls? Last show it was Sherry Jackson, here it's Judy Nugent. We get a brief lecture about how the virtues of young ladies must be preserved, then scenes of her swizzling booze and romancing guys old enough to be her Hollywood producer. Hmm. Anyway, this mademoiselle in distress story is as routine and worn as the stock footage of Paris we see. Zee peepul are Franch becuz zey talk like zes, we? How come they don't talk American? The only thing missing is a mime in a striped shirt and black beret eating a baguette. Zoot suit alors!
