Our last pic for this week gives us another long-overdue look at El Greco, the colorful drug lord of the Baretta episode “That Sister Ain’t No Cousin.” It was first broadcast on January 19, 1977. Something has amused him – can’t quite remember what.
This episode was directed by Seattle native Bruce Kessler, a now-retired television director who racked up many impressive credits in a 30-odd year career. He also has several feature films under his belt, including Simon, King of the Witches (1971). He is also a retired professional race-car driver and a powerboating enthusiast. He is very possibly the last person who ever spoke to James Dean.
