Pic of the Day: “Set Up City”

The Pic of the Day for today is from the Baretta episode “Set Up City” which was first broadcast on October 29, 1975. Tim is jewel thief Joe Dineen, who, along with his partner Angel (Larry Block), enlists the aid of fresh-out-of-jail explosives expert Jake Hatch (Charles Durning) for their next big job.

This episode was directed by Curtis Harrington, who also directed Tim in What’s the Matter with Helen? (1971). He once said in an interview that during the making of this episode, Tim was supposed to have roughed up Larry D. Mann‘s used car salesman a bit during their scene together. Tim apparently did his job too well, and Mann sued for medical expenses through the Screen Actors Guild. Ouch.
