Richard Crenna was a fine actor who rose to television prominence in The Real McCoys, playing Luke, the son of Amos McCoy, played by the estimable Walter Brennan. Later, he starred in Slattery’s People, and from then on he was a familiar face on TV and in movies (he played Colonel Trautman in the first three “Rambo” movies).
In the late 1980’s and 1990’s, he starred in seven TV movies as Lieutenant Frank Janek of the NYPD. One of those movies was 1994’s The Forget-Me-Not Murders, co-starring Tyne Daly as Dr. Archer, who is convincing her patients to commit murders on her behalf, including trying to kill Janek’s daughter. Dr. Archer has what might be called an unhealthy obsession with a painting of her mother, done by her erstwhile father.
It was actually a pretty good movie, as TV movies go. Here is the entire movie, courtesy of YouTube user Retro Movies Central. If you have an hour and a half, it’s worth watching.
