The Underground Man

broadhurst sue age graves

(NBC, 5/6/1974, 120 mins). Peter Graves, completely miscast as novelist Ross MacDonald’s private eye, Lew Archer, goes after the kidnappers of an old flame’s young son and gets mixed up in a series of murders going back 15 years. This was the pilot for the subsequent very short-lived (six episodes) series “Archer” that began in January 1975 and starred Brian Keith, a better but not ideal choice.
