In response to Rob's defense of Richard Long in the series: I took it upon myself to watch "Face In The Window", with Rex Randolph in the lead. I tried an experiment which was to essentially imagine either Roger Smith or Efrem Zimbalist in Rex's role to see if that would've materially changed the effectiveness of the episode in my mind. The episode was quite a good one with all my favorites elements--frequent scenes in Dino's and B&S office, along with most of the entire cast present and a background story of movie actors and studios. The script was quite satisfactory, too. Rex glided through his role like a pro and carried his scenes quite easily. The old boy also looked as good in a suit as James Bond--just the right amount of shirt collar above the jacket and cuffs below the sleeves. I tried like heck to identify the car he was driving--I assume it was a Ford make--but of a darker color than what the other boys drive. Couldn't get a glimpse of a badge on it, but I think it was a Sunliner. There was a great comedic scene in Dino's where Roscoe and Rex, half in the bag, construct a race horse out of a pickle, two olives and some toothpicks for legs. Later on, they're at a movie theater in front of the film's marquee poster "The Day the Earth Exploded"--no such real movie, but obviously a spoof on the sci-fi flicks of that era. Of course, Kookie spouts another classic Kookie-ism at one point, identifying swimming pool salesmen as "splash pushers". A couple of frequent 77 SS guest stars, Merry Anders and Paula Raymond, joined Peter Breck ( a harbinger of his future pairing with Richard Long in the Big Valley) in the episode. Merry Anders, Paula Raymond, Peter Breck The premise of the show was so good, and Rex played his part so well, that I don't think substituting Jeff or Stu in his place would have helped one iota. I'll admit it moved the needle somewhat in my opinion of him.
