we're talkin' barry newman (i hope) here, who later starred in a tv show
called "petrocelli."  vanishing point also starred cleavon little as a
blind d.j. who was the lead's only contact with the outside world.  geez
louise, it's been quite a while since i saw that movie, and here at
nodakoda state, i lack the reference books i had at so. meth. u. to confirm
my memory.  i'm sure, tho', that myriads of screen-ellers will be phoning in
