Robert Culp was a fine actor and a television great. The chemistry between Culp and his co-star Bill Cosby made the series I SPY one of the most watchable shows of the Sixties. This was carried over into Culp's one film as a director, HICKEY AND BOGGS, a subversively offbeat tale of two down at heel private eyes - one gay and one black - who find themselves woefully out of their depth and out-gunned. Culp took the television personas that he and Cosby had developed on television and used them as a springboard for this excellent movie.
