This was a 1966 series that lasted one season.


All episodes scores are by Lalo Schifrin unless otherwise noted.

The scoring is jazz oriented and just oozes cool at every turn.

    This program had some of the best credit visuals, and a tremendous theme. It is unfortunate that the only commercial recording of the theme (of which I am aware) was by Al Hirt, using a "wa-wa" trumpet. The same arrangement with a flute would have been fantastic.

    The show itself was pretty good (if my memories of 50-odd years ago are correct), but it was five to ten years too late. By the mid 60's the half-hour drama was effectively dead.

    A release of the original scores would be wonderful.

    Oh yeah! If any of the music from this show is released,count me in, most definitely.

    I loved the show. And that theme! Schifrin can do more with a flute and a small ensemble than a dozen composers can do with their bloated symphony orchestras.

    A correction: Fried did more than one episode. I've edited the post to correct that.

    There's been no official release, of course. The series isn't even legally release on DVD either.

    It would probably take a 2CD set (maybe three) to get all the scoring goodness covered.

    I forgot to say: According to trivia found elsewhere, scenes from the pilot were cut, including the character's past as a cat burglar, so these may have been scored and there is unheard scoring waiting to be unearthed by some label.
