11. All the Streets Are Silent
Case file: #52-499362-M
Mike Murtaugh: Theft of Government Property.
Original broadcast date: 28 November 1965
Burt Reynolds plays the bad guy here. James Farentino plays FBI informant Frank Metro, who provides Inspector Lewis Erskine with the dope. Mr. Reynolds repays the favor by terrorizing Mr. Farentino’s pregnant wife, played by Pilar Seurat (1938-2001).
- Mr. Reynolds is not related to William Reynolds (who played S.A.C. Tom Colby). William Reynolds’ original surname was Regnolds; born of Norwegian descent, he hails from Los Angeles. Burt Reynolds was born a little over four years later in Florida.
- FBI agents operate a bulldozer in the best tradition of The Sands of Iwo Jima. Not only are these guys accountants and attorneys, but also heavy equipment operators! Amazing! The agent running the bulldozer was properly attired in his suit, white shirt and hat. J. Edgar Hoover’s dress code and FBI agents have stated that the dress code always dictated a white shirt with the suit, not even a blue shirt.
- Burt Reynolds was in his final season as Quint on Gunsmoke. He and Norman Fell would star together in another Quinn Martin series, Dan August (1970-71). Mr. Reynolds, of course, went on to be an A-list actor in the 1970s.
