Try this flick … “Murph the Surf.” The passing of Robert Conrad this past weekend at 84 of heart failure at his home in Malibu, Calif. puts a spotlight on his career and, despite his iconic role of “James ‘Jim’ West” on TV’s “The Wild Wild West” that debuted in 1965, I liked Conrad best in “Murph the Surf.” After all, the film is about a Miami beach-bum-turned-jewel-thief who achieved international fame before being convicted of murder and Miami is my hometown and I was there during his heyday. So, I really enjoy “Murph the Surf” (especially since it was filmed in the mid-1970s when I was tooling around South Florida in both boats and cars with friends at many of the locations in the film). Conrad was good in the Christmas flick “Jingle All the Way” with Arnold Schwarzenegger; I liked him in TV’s “Baa Baa Black Sheep;” and he was even a pinpoint of light in the total stinker called “Moving Violations.” He also did a great episode in 1970 of “Mission: Impossible,” where he played an assassin. RIP, Robert. As an entertainer, you did better than good … you were great!
