(today's zomby) AND RALPHIE PARKER'S OLD MAN KICKS SOME ASS!
I call this one "Birdbrains" because... well, because The Unbearable Lightness of Being was taken!
But I want you to journey back with me now in time. Before Darren McGavin was Ralphie Parker's "old man" in A Christmas Story... even before he was Kolchak: The Night Stalker...
He was Mike Hammer.
That's right, Darren McGavin played the title role on Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer (1958-1960), a detective series newly released on DVD. Here's "the old man" kicking Steve Ihnat's pasty ass. Enjoy.
Want more? Here's your chance.
