(more) Complete credited cast: George Peppard .... Thomas Banacek Ralph Manza .... Jay Drury Murray Matheson .... Felix Mulholland rest of cast listed alphabetically Christine Belford .... Carlie Kirkland (1973-1974) (more) Runtime: 90 min (17 episodes) Country: USA Language: English Color: Color (Technicolor) Sound Mix: Mono or 5.1 maybe I have all 17 commercial cut episodes of the 90 minute of Thomas "Banacek", part of the Columbo and MacMillan and wife Mystery Night Movie back in the 1970's. Bamacek was one *cool* character collecting huge finder fees. Getting the audience scratching their heads as to where the item(s) went, including a disapearing football player in the middle of fotball game. My favorite "500,000 dollars a page". When are we going to see this un cut gem on DVD and how many of us are there?
