The Million Dollar Rip-Off

charles director nbc fries

(NBC, 9/22/1976, 90 mins). Freddie Prinze, in his only dramatic film role, is an excon electronics whiz who, with the aid of four female accomplices, steals a bundle from the Chicago Transit Authority, much to the annoyance of a dyspeptic detective who has been keeping an eye on him since he left prison. The original story, interestingly, was written by two of the more prolific TV actors of the era (William Devane and John Pleshette), presumably as a vehicle for one or both of them.
