Didn't Walt Koenig play Misok Bedrozian?
19 May 2008 | by scarr-6See all my reviews

This is the particular episode of The Great Adventure that always stuck with me. Consequently, I am shaken to be told that the part of Misok Bedrozian, the Armenian raisin farmer, was played by Lee Marvin, and *not* by Walt Koenig, which is what I really clearly remember. (When asked by his family what they will eat the coming winter, if they can't get their crop to market, he roars back, "Raisins! Six tons of them!). Koenig is much more suited to the swarthy Bedrozian, and I have no recollection at all of Marvin in this role. Anyone else remember it differently? As to the historicity of the incident, I again remember the episode as set in the Central Valley, the center of the raisin industry, and the Armenian community in California. The SP railroad tactic of denying access rights at railroad crossings is well established (see Frank Norris' book The Octopus, or Wallace Smith's Garden of the Sun. BTW, the latter is the standard history of the Central Valley, and does not contain reference to Bedrozian or any similar name.
