Pic of the Day: “Set Up City” revisited

Our pic of the day is another one from the Curtis Harrington-directed Baretta episode “Set Up City.” It was first broadcast on October 29, 1975. Ill-tempered jewel thief Joe Dineen shows his displeasure with explosives expert Jake Hatch (Charles Durning) threatening to blow them all to smithereens, while a nervous Larry Block looks on.

Block was a familiar character actor in films and on television since the early 1970s. He also did frequent stage work and wrote poetry. Unfortunately he passed away last October.
