jenkins based kennedy larry

(CBS, 3/21/1974, 90 mins). Based on the 1971 comedy western “Skin Game,” this lark, a pilot to a prospective series that never materialized, had a couple of hapless post Civil War con men, one black, one white, on the sagebrush trail trying to collect a $15,000 bounty on an outlaw’s head. Lou Gossett re created the role he played in the original film, while Larry Hagman stepped in to take over James Garner’s big-screen role.
