  1. #4. James Franciscus, who also starred as MR. NOVAK, was the blind insurance investigator in LONGSTREET. His white German Shepherd was called Pax. Bruce Lee taught Longstreet the martial art of jeet kune do. I think that episode was called "The Way of the Intercepting Fist." I remember all this from Bruce's biography. He and Stirling Silliphant, who created LONGSTREET, were good friends.
