Mitchell (1975) (part 1 of 8)
The Cast of Characters:
Mitchell (Joe Don Baker). Portly, slovenly cop on the edge who plays by his own rules. Mess with him, and he might just step on your foot.
Greta (Linda Evans). Total pothead prostitute who inexplicably falls for Mitchell. At long last, a hooker who gives out receipts!
Walter Deaney (John Saxon). Gun collector and part-time dune buggy enthusiast. Crosses Mitchell’s path when he shoots a guy for stealing his silverware.
James Arthur Cummings (Martin Balsam). Drug smuggler and bonafide soup lover. Constantly stalked by Mitchell, whom he eventually treats to a steak dinner and a really big orange.
Benton (Merlin Olsen). Cummings’ henchman, butler, doorman, chauffeur, and all-around nursemaid. Gets endlessly tweaked by Mitchell before finally being killed Gong Show-style.
Salvatore Mistretta (Morgan Paull). Tries to force Cummings to smuggle some drugs for a mob boss named Gallano. Mitchell shoots him for rolling through a stop sign on his dirt bike.
