Cops Detectives and Private Eyes of the 70s by dusty-abell Cops Detectives and Private Eyes of the 70s by dusty-abell
Here's my tribute to all the great movies and television series of the 1970's I grew up watching as a kid. This has been a piece i've wanted to do for years and am happy to have finally finished it. How many of these do you remember or have you caught any of them in the intervening years on YouTube, Netflix, Hulu etc. A lot of the TV shows are a product of their time and are still wonderfully entertaining because of it. I can not recommend Columbo enough, it was really the impetus to finally do this piece! The motion pictures represented in this montage are all classics..... Jaws and The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3 being two of my absolute favorites of all time.

Here's a link to a character call-out key to identify all the people in the picture- dusty-abell.deviantart.com/art…

The layout was inspired by an awesome book cover to the second Tom Strong collection by Chris Sprouse. No paper or pencils were harmed in the completion of this piece. Enjoy....................

You are amazing as always, but can you imagine a 12 issue series using all these characters?  Let's get Perez and Wolfman on it!!

Only Kojak can boast a version of the theme song sung by Sammy Davis Jr.

FYI The song "Keep Your Eye On The Sparrow" was sung by Sammy for "Baretta" not Kojak.

Aha! Not so fast, Cowabunga! The Kojak theme_has_ lyrics never used in the series but a single was released sung by Sammy.
Here it is for your listening pleasure:
