(CBS, 5/9/1975, 90 mins). A heist romp that has a convicted con man risking another prison term by setting out in Robin Hood style to fleece the crooked head of a big charity fund who has been diverting the money to cover gambling losses. This “Sting” carbon, spurred by the enormous success of the Newman Redford movie, turned out to be an unsuccessful pilot for a series with singer John Davidson.
