Pic of the Day: “The Treasure of Sierra Madre Street”

Our pic for Monday is from the Tenspeed and Brown Shoe episode “The Treasure of Sierra Madre Street,” first broadcast on June 20, 1980. Tim is rather hilarious as mental patient Obituary Bob, so-called according to his pal Dean (Michael C. Gwynne) because he killed seven people with an axe. Ouch.

OB is convinced that Dean is going to transport them to “his planet”: “I can already feel the celestial heavens at my fingertips!” The chemistry between Tim and Gwynne is delightful. This episode is also notable for the presence of another John Cassavetes veteran, Lynn Carlin.
