JOE DON BAKER IS "MITCHELL" IN THIS 1975 B-CRIME THRILLER! - A TRULY HORRIFYING MAN W/ A BADGE

I wouldn't necessarily use the term "milked" but Joe Don Baker sure appeared in a lot of early 70's flicks. His acting talents in general have never been that good and I've always felt that his performance in Charley Verrick as the hit man for the Mafia was one, if not his only, shining moments. Now, as to this obscure little B-flick- the first 10 minutes or so are actually pretty entertaining but then the film starts a slow continuous nose-dive into choppy plot, bad acting and some of the worst editing you'll ever see. You can read some real reviews below but commencing with the award, "Mitchell" gets a disappointing One Pinewood Tree....The Sheer Horror!!

Mitchell (1975) - MST3K Review

Mitchell (Joe Don Baker) is a cop who does what it takes to get the bad guys. This involves talking to J. Arthur Cummings (Martin Balsam) and Walter Deaney (John Saxon). It also involves sleeping with a hooker named Greta (Linda Evans). But mostly it involves him sitting in a car smoking, and being generally unpleasant.

After quickly rising out of the mists in an uncredited bit in Cool Hand Luke in 1967, Texas-born character actor Joe Don Baker found himself nearing that proverbial spotlight many performers out there dream of.

THE SHEER HORROR!!
