John Cassavetes (Timeless Media Group)
The character is a New York-based detective and jazz musician, and his cases have the same moody tone that informs his melodies. Gena Rowlands (alias Mrs. Cassavetes), Michael Landon and Elizabeth Montgomery are among the guest stars ... and the musicians sitting in with Staccato include Shelly Manne and later film composer extraordinaire John Williams. *** (Not rated: AS, V)
