What Might've Been: Longstreet (1971)

Longstreet was yet another series that came out of ABC's Movie of the Week. However, unlike other graduates, such as The Rookies, it didn't last very long, largely because it was ahead of its time.

Insurance investigator Mike Longstreet (James Franciscus) had lost his sight in an explosion that killed his wife. He gained the services of a German Shepherd guide dog, but there were those times when he would travel alone, and into danger.

Bruce Lee (ex-The Green Hornet) appeared in 4 episodes, including the opener, "The Way of the Intercepting Fist". After saving Longstreet, Li (Lee) becomes the blind sleuth's martial arts instructor. This would be Lee's last TV gig.

No rating.
