Our pic of the day is another look at Danny, the garrulous but racist diner proprietor of the Starsky and Hutch episode “The Velvet Jungle,” first broadcast on March 5, 1977. Hutch (David Soul) is doing his best to calm Danny down during the investigation of a broken window.
Check this post for a video of this priceless performance. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go fix myself some super pancakes.
If I recall, he really dislikes the Hispanics in this episode, correct?
Correct. He actually says “wetback.” This is Tim REALLY acting here, because he was a great champion of the underdog in real life.
He’s convincing too!
Very much so!
