Pic of the Day: “Superstar” revisited

Our pic for today takes another look at “Superstar,” the episode of the short-lived series Supertrain that was first broadcast on March 14, 1979. Timothy and Mills Watson are a pair of inept hitmen trailing a TV star (Dennis Dugan). Sylvia Sidney‘s character calls them “Dopey and Grumpy.”

Watson pretty much had a lock on the bumbling sheriff/deputy roles on television in the 1970s and ’80s. Hard-working character actor Ed Lauter reports that he is now retired on a 22-acre spread in Oregon, “happy as a clam.”
