I could sure use that "free pass" this week. I think I only know a couple of these without some deep thinking. #4 is "The Greatest American Hero" (big hit) and "Hardcastle & McCormick" (not a big hit). For #3, didn't Magnum like "Stalag 17"?

Paul, I bow before your talent in stumping me completely. I am proud to admit that I don't know a SINGLE ANSWER to any of these questions. I say proud because I will at least earn a prize, the booby one.

My mom still watches Magnum on dvd, I have to tip my hat to her viewing habits. By the way, do you remember who played his aunt in one episode?

Paul, this is not my answer, it's mom's: according to her Magnum was quarterback on the Naval Football team. But you got her stumped on the "feel good" movie!

Gilby Mom is right. The film is Billy Wilder's Stalag 17. Rick got that right. In one show they even ran the painting the white line sceen with Harry & the Animal
