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

Kicking off the week is another look at the Tenspeed and Brown Shoe episode “The Treasure of Sierra Madre Street,” first airing on June 20, 1980. Sanitarium denizen Obituary Bob absorbs the details of an escape plan being hatched by his pal Dean (Michael C. Gwynne).

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.
