It's All Revealed
27 February 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

In the second part of a two part Kojak episode it all gets revealed why Geraldine Page has taken such an interest in the career of Assistant District Attorney Charles Kimbrough. And it ain't just because she likes his law and order attitude and the way he puts criminals away. Turns out that Kimbrough did her a real solid back a few years ago. In fact quite a number of people are in debt to this woman.

The key to all of this is Mary Beth Hurt who has been locked away in Bedford Hills after confessing she murdered her mother. But Telly Savalas and the Manhattan South Squad dig into this one and it all comes out.

Geraldine Page dominated both parts of this story with her portrayal of widowed powerbroker, a real mover and shaker in New York City who is used to having her way.

Not with Telly Savalas she doesn't.
