Wow! That's great that you got together after all this time. ☺️
Wow! They should have done for you like that old program "This is Your Life" She and an old teacher you had plus others show up and it is on camera. They bring them on stage one by one and you're so surprised. They talk about you and everything. You get gifts. Maybe even an old boyfriend shows up from HS --This Is Your Life AWL! 🤩
Lol…Wouldn’t that be something 😆 Sounds like fun to me 😉

The only other show I have ever seen Broderick Crawford in other than Highway Patrol was in one episode of Land of the Giants. He played an evil scientist creating a giant sized robot.

4/8, I have seen most episodes but don't even remember the premiere. I'm not sure if I saw that one.

You got 4 out of 8
Were you able to track down the right score, or did it slip away?

5 out of 8. I can’t get how Broderick Crawford got away with his rapid fire dialogue deliveries. I call him the Fast Talking Man!😂
