Can't forget Count Baker
14 February 2007 | by non_sportcardandySee all my reviews

Even though it's been more than 40 years since viewing this episode I would like to comment on the little remembered by myself.The naked city was viewed often in our house but this episode is the only one I recollect.The reason for that is the character Count Baker played by Joseph Ruskin.The Count is a hired assassin and he's working on his thirteenth hit,his version of a Bakers dozen.This was my first viewing of Joseph buskin and he was about the coldest looking killer I'd ever seen on the screen.Very scary with his rifle that could be used from a long distance.If someone had stated Ruskin was a real hit-man hired to play the part for TV I would of believed it.Sometime later I would see this actor in a less serious role,that was a relief for me.Til this day though I can't forget Count Baker.
