(NBC, 11/18/1964, 120 mins). Director Don Siegel’s second made for TV movie (the first, “The Killers,” had been diverted to theatrical distribution, having originally been deemed too violent for television) is a remake of the chase melodrama “Ride the Pink Horse” (1947), set this time in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. A gunman sets out to avenge his supposed murder of a friend and finds himself neck-deep in trouble with a powerful union official. One of the top songs of the day, “The Girl From Ipanema,” was worked in by Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto when the action lagged. Based on the 1946 novel by Dorothy B. Hughes.
