Product Description

The weekly adventures of private detective Joe Mannix in Los Angeles. At his side is his faithful assistant Peggy Fair. Hard-boiled and gritty, Mannix dished out justice outside the law for his clients.

Amazon.com

There's that great line in Blazing Saddles when Sheriff Bart grabs his gun to go capture the fearsome Mongo. "Don't do that," the Waco Kid cautions. "You'll just make him mad." Joe Mannix (Mike Connors in his signature Emmy-winning role) is a lot like that. Cut the brake line in his car, rough him up, or frame him for assault; once he's on a case, he won't quit. Doing the legwork and pursuing the thinnest of leads, Mannix is an old school private eye, which is why it's great to see him out of the high-tech Intertect firm and in his own no-tech private practice with his faithful Girl Friday, Peggy (Gail Fisher in her groundbreaking, Emmy-winning role). Mannix doesn't need computers to do his job. "I don't fly by instruments," he proclaims in "The Girl Who Came in with the Tide," "I fly by the seat of my pants like a barnstorming pilot." Which is why, in "Tide," when he recognizes a slain girl about town at the morgue and discovers she was in the company of the "swinging attorney" who once had Mannix's license suspended, he takes the case as a labor of love. Some cases put his gut instincts to the test. In "A View of Nowhere," he is convinced he witnessed a man trying to strangle a woman, but when he follows up, the couple denies anything is amiss. Some of this season's most compelling cases hit closer to home; in "In Need of a Friend," he reaches out to a man just released from prison after seven years for a crime he didn’t commit, and whom Mannix had helped to convict. Peggy’s love life also keeps him busy. In "Death in a Minor Key," Mannix goes to a small town to help clear the name of Peggy’s jazz musician boyfriend (guest star Yaphet Kotto) after he reveals he is a fugitive, and in "Last Rites for Miss Emma," her latest squeeze may be involved in the theft of morphine. In classic TV PI tradition, Mannix butts heads with the police (including a pre-M*A*S*H Larry Linville, and Robert Reed), but his "reputation" earns him considerable leeway. Mannix was a particularly hard-hitting series in its day, and it’s still bruising. In episode after episode, Mannix takes a licking, but keeps on ticking. His sports coats may now be out of fashion, but this tough and rugged series will never go out of style. In "an uptight world," it’s comforting to know that Mannix is on the job. --Donald Liebenson

Great news for Classic TV fans!

CBS Paramount Home Video is quickly following the successful release of Season 1 of the iconic TV series 'Mannix' on DVD with the release of the complete Season 2!

Great news: CBS Parmount Home Video has also annouced that ALL of the ORIGINAL musical score and cues for every episode has been included and not replaced! (They had been sharply criticized by fans for replacing some of the music in Season 2 of the Fugitive.)

Mannix ran from 1967 through 1975 on CBS. Created by Richard Levinson and William Link and developed by executive producer Bruce Geller (who also created Mission: Impossible), the title character, Joe Mannix, is a two-fisted private investigator portrayed by Mike Connors.

Rarely has an actor so inhabited a TV character that it's impossible to separate the two. This series represents one of those times, and even the show's producers recognized it when the unusual credit proclaimed: Mike Connors IS Mannix.

The ruggedly handsome Connors was the perfect match, and made the signature loud polyester sports jackets of the time look great on his altar ego. Mannix also drove a variety of convertibles, and even had a car phone - which was unheard of at the time!

Mannix originally worked for a high-concept computerized firm known as Intertect in the rarely seen first season. In the second season, Mannix has left the firm and opened his own private investigative agency at 17 Paseo Verde, Los Angeles, California.

It was in the second season that the brilliant and popular actress Gail Fisher was brought on board as Mannix's devoted secretary, Peggy Fair. Peggy's cop-husband, a friend of Mannix, had been killed in line of duty.

It is hard to add much more praise on this great series than already has but here goes. First I never missed this show as a child growing up, I watched it with my dad every Saturday night. It was the only night of the week I could stay up until 11:00pm. The first thing that strikes me as I watch the show 40 years later is how shows of this era tried to appeal to the best in human nature. Loyalty, integrity, honesty, sense of justice, and in Mannix case genuinely caring about many of the clients he was trying to help. Compare that to most shows of today that wallow in the worst of human nature even glorify it. I probably will never get a chance to meet Mick Connors or another hero of my youth James Arness of Gunsmoke but would like to thank them for helping to make a positive lasting impression on a little boy so many years ago. I highly recommend this dvd set. Thanks Joe !

I've always been a Mannix fan so, I really liked season 1... but I have to tell you Season 2 is much better. The story lines have improved with Joe's new address at 17 Paseo Verde. Gail Fisher is not only beautiful... but she can act as well! I couldn't help notice the much better use of cinematography in season 2 that just wasn't there in season 1. The story lines are better and easier to follow and Chrysler supplied the cool cars. Joe drives a dark green Dodge GTS 340 convertible with mag wheels... it's sweet! We can only hope for the release of future seasons! Mike Connors where ever you are... BRAVO! Well done!!!

Just a few notes of Lalo Schiffrin's seductive theme song for Mannix and I'm transported right back to my early teens in SoCal. I'd forgotten how much I really loved this show until I stumbled upon this set. The series holds up surprisingly well in terms of story and acting; Mike Connors is enjoyably charismatic and sexy as independent, two-fisted PI-with-a-heart Joe Mannix. Plenty of familiar faces from 1960s TV Land appear as guest stars. Although the same studio backlots and painted backgrounds can get tiresome, each episode does manage break out of the studio for location shooting and that's when things perk right up.

The time-warp aspects of the series are lots of fun, even the not-so-positive ones. I had forgotten how much Mannix smokes, though less than in Season 1. The fashions are a scream, not just miniskirts and go-go boots for women but also pointy bras, big hair and ever-present fake eyelashes. The mini-skirts we all wore back then look somehow startling today, especially when worn by very professional women such as the sublime actress Gail Fisher, who played Mannix's plucky secretary. (How quaint that he calls her "Peggy" or "Honey" and she calls him "Mr. Mannix.")

Mannix shows up in some pretty hideous sports coats (some of which cause the dreaded pulsing "moiré" effect on the screen), not to mention ankle-baring tight slacks and the occasional foppish neck scarf (ouch!). And it's fun to watch his hair color get blacker and blacker--but that front curl never gets mussed. However, Mike Connors is such a watchable actor that all of that stuff is simply amusing, not distracting.

Vintage muscle-car lovers, take note: Mannix has got the goods, with plenty of car chases.

Tough, cool loners don't answer to anyone except themselves, and that's the Mannix way. Go it alone. Be tough. Be smart. And, most importantly of all, be honest, brutally honest. The chicks all dig you, but chicks are a dime a dozen, and besides, you've got things to do. You've got a crime to solve. You've got a mystery to unravel. You've got a bullet to dodge. There are bad guys who think they can handle you, but you make them think about it a whole lot harder. The bad guys end up changing their minds, but you never change yours. You believe in yourself. You believe in the truth. You believe in helping good, honest people and turning dishonest people upside down. Your tough, never-say-die nature was made even tougher in the Korean War. You served your country. You came home a hero. And the hero in you found himself a new mission. Your new mission: be tough, be cool, be Mannix!

If you're familiar with the show, all you really need to know is that the DVD's do the show proud. They have great picture quality and include all the episodes of season two with the awesome and beautiful Peggy. No special features, and that's a shame, but the show is as it should be: unedited and right at our fingertips. Bring on season 3.
