    WGN Channel 9, here in Chicago, used to air this tough little low-budget gangster flick on The Late Movie from 1978-1981. They first aired it on WGN Presents at 10:30pm back in 1975 and The Morning Movie at 9 a.m. in 1979...Mad Dog Coll was the picture that had me hooked on heavy-eyed John Chandler. I ran across him a couple of times before that when ABC Channel 7 played Part 2, Walking Tall on The Friday Night Movie and WGN played Major Dundee on WGN Presents. But it was Mad Dog Coll that made me a true John Chandler convert. The funny thing is I was introduced to him by accident. It happened on a warm, muggy late night in 1980 when I couldn't sleep and decided to stay up and watch a movie on Channel 9 in the 2 a.m. hour. That night, The Late Movie was airing Mad Dog Coll starring John Chandler and when I heard his name, I immediately thought of silver-haired leading man Jeff Chandler so that's who I was expecting to see strolling up to the gravestone in the fog shrouded pre-credits sequence. When the camera pans up from his shiny shoes to his face, I was surprised to see a cold, little baby face framing large,sleepy blue eyes and thinking to myself, "That's not the guy I thought it was." He mutters with a nasal croak through his sneering lips, "Hello, Pop." Then whips out a tommy gun and fires a rapid round of bullets into the gravestone and lets out a satisfied chuckle as jazzy horns cue up, leading into some of the coolest title graphics I ever saw at the beginning of a movie. I stayed glued to this flick for its full 88 minute running time and so glad I did. In spite of its budgetary constraints and sketchy writing, 1961's Mad Dog Coll became a personal favorite in the annals of crime pics. To paraphrase Renee Zelleweger in Jerry Maguire, Mad Dog Coll had me at "Hello, Pop"......

    I went to high school with Jerry Orbach and it is great to see him in one of his early movies. I had seen it once before, by accident, and almost missed it tonight. I hope it gets scheduled again as I would like to let one of my friends know about it. Jerry was in choir with us. He had a wonderful voice. I hope it is offered on home video in the near future.

  • Please air it again :)

    The best part of the movie was seeing Gene Hackman in Obviously oneof his first films. He didn't even get a a line to speak.

    Man!!! what a fantastic gangster movie. For guys who really like the classic black and whites. I hate to say, but "this character out shines both Cagney and Edward G" My opinion of course.My brother and I use to stay glued to this movie when it aired in the 60s.My brother, Kevin is since deceased and I really thank TCM for airing it this September 15th 2010.I will watch it pretending my brother is by my side. KentThanks again TCM
