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

Our pic today takes another look at the Tenspeed and Brown Shoe episode “The Treasure of Sierra Madre Street” (see what they did there?). It first aired on June 20, 1980. Obituary Bob and his pal Dean, aka “Tokar the Magnificent” or something like that (Michael C. Gwynne) have just busted out of the sanitarium and are in search of the titular treasure.

The Treasure of Sierra Madre Street - 1980

Tenspeed and Brown Shoe was a short-lived but enjoyable caper series that deserved a better and longer run. Timothy and Gwynne had worked together previously in Steve De Jarnatt‘s short film Tarzana (1978) and were good friends off-screen as well. How great would a TV series starring the two of them have been? Pretty darn great, methinks.
