When Bruce Boxleitner Went All Travis Fucking Bickle On The Houston Astros

Posted in Baseball, Cinema at 12:51 am by

Last Saturday,director Andrew McLaglen —- whose film and TV credits included nearly 100 episodes of “Gunsmoke” — passed away at the age of 96.  Aside from suffering the indignity of being (indirectly) mocked by Rob Brydon, McLaglen was also the auteur behind the 1977 made-for-television saga, “Murder At The World Series”.  It’s hard to say which stretched the bounds of believability more, the Astros playing in the Fall Classic or Bruce Boxleitner as a would-be homicidal kook.

Don’t even try to rent a bootleg DVD of this movie. Bo Porter has the last remaining copy and he’s been watching it non-stop for two days.
