(probably stoned) fair memories of the TV adaptation of Mongo's Back in Town starring Joe Don Baker I recall it being wildly over the top--sort of like a spaghetti western to the highest power--but fascinating in a crude way.

************* Alright, this isn't about your above comment, but I wanted to mention that I read a Gold Medals article you wrote in an old issue of CrimeTime I've got. Great article. You mentioned several authors I've read but also several that I hadn't. One of them was Colby's The Captain Must Die. I think this article is also in The Big Book of Noir, or some other collection I have.

Inspired by your article, I'm very carefully (don't want it to fall apart) reading it. In spite of what seems like a sorta corny title, I'm loving it. I'm heading to some of your other recommendations right after this one.
