Sam Peckinpah – Pericles on 31st Street (1962)


Sam Peckinpah directs, produces and co-writes this episode of The Dick Powell Show.

Carroll O’Connor stars in this dramatic play as a greedy landlord, Barsevick, who pretends to be his tenants best friend, but is really only concerned with money. Theodore Bikel plays the local hot dog vendor who’s the oly person to see Barsevick for what he really is.

Watch out for a brief appearance by Peckinpah regular Strother Martin, and for a very early appearance from an 11-year old Kurt Russell.
