Pic of the Day: “The Odds Against Donald Jordan” revisited

Today we revisit Tim’s priceless cameo as Moose, hep-cat bookie and Mannix’s old gambling pal, of the Mannix episode “The Odds Against Donald Jordan.” It was first broadcast on March 1, 1969. He is encouraging Mannix (Mike Connors) to “Come and see me, dad! You dig?”, imitating the shake and throw of the dice.

Connors, born Krekor Ohanian (he’s of Armenian descent), was known as Touch Connors during his early career, a nickname he acquired during his college basketball days. He recently sued CBS/Paramount, claiming that he has never received any royalties from Mannix. I can’t seem to find any word on the results of the suit.
