Trivia

Vincent Gardenia plays 'Vince LaGuardia' in this episode. The character and situations were being test marketed on Kojak audiences with the possibility of launching a new series, but it was never picked up. This was his only appearance as the character. See more »

Goofs

A man is shown using a rifle with a scope. The rifle scope, however, has no crosshairs, which would make it next to impossible to aim accurately. See more »

An unusual Vegas heist
14 August 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This episode involving Kojak going to Las Vegas with Crocker on an extradition to pick up old counterfeiter Jeff Corey was a pilot for a proposed series involving former Manhattan South detective Vincent Gardenia and his young nephew Billy Darnell. Gardenia now works for Vegas PD. It looked like a good show, too bad it wasn't picked up.

Corey was part of a scheme involving a Las Vegas heist. But if you're thinking Ocean's 11 you're all wrong.

Nice performance by Eileen Brennan as talent agent who was a neighbor of Corey's. Nice episode all around.
