Assignment: Munich

robert scheider jerry george

(ABC, 4/30/1972, 120 mins). An undercover agent (played by Roy Scheider), using his bar as a front, vies with three assassins to locate a stolen fortune in Germany for which a man was murdered after leaving prison. Ultimately, in series form, the locale was changed, along with the title (to “Assignment: Vienna”) and the three regulars, following a legal action against Scheider. The actor, expecting big things for himself in movies after winning an Oscar nomination for “The French Connection,” balked at continuing in the part of Jake Webster and was sued by the producers. In the 1972-73 series, Robert Conrad took over the role, Charles Cioffi was signed to play Caldwell, and Anton Diffring was Hoffman.
