Did You Know?


The plane which Mannix crashed in (N2203P, 1956 Piper Apache PA-23-150, s/n 23-813) was owned by Aer-O West Aviation in Corona, CA and was flown by flight instructor, Vince Marzo. The Apache is still airworthy and owned by a flight corporation in Bossier City, Louisiana. See more »


When the rattlesnake is shown first from behind it's tail is close to a foot behind it's head. When the angle switches to Joe's point of view, the rattlesnake is now beside and almost in front of the head, obviously a different snake or time. See more »


Luke Whitney: [after saving Joe from a rattlesnake] Man, you're getting to be a real nuisance.
Joe Mannix: Thanks.
Luke Whitney: It's the least I could do... with your gun.
Joe Mannix: My gun in exchange for the compass and canteen.
Luke Whitney: Sooner or later, everybody gets cheated.
Joe Mannix: My turn, right?
Luke Whitney: Look on the bright side, now it's behind you.
Joe Mannix: Why all this hide-and-seek?
Luke Whitney: I checked your wallet after I patched you up, Mannix. Your line of work and my uniform doesn't exactly make lasting relationships.
Joe Mannix: I don't suppose they just let you walk out.

Absoultely horrible
4 May 2018 | by nbrice18See all my reviews

I normally would give most episodes of Mannix 7 stars or more but this was the worst one I've seen. I like Greg Morris but the plot was predictable and boring. Please tell me why prison guards in New Mexico would have (bad) southern accents? Must all remote areas and crooked sheriffs/cops/guards have southern accents? I couldn't wait for this one to end.
