The next evening you are heading through the Yerba Buena Tunnel on your way over the Emperor Norton Bridge to Baghdad By The Bay be sure to play Henry Mancini's all time slow-creeper hit, "Experiment in Terror," which is the theme from Blake Edward's outstandingly suspenseful crime movie of the same name.


The lead of the film, played by Lee Remick, is under the spell of fear from a psychotic killer played by none other than Ross Martin, who many of you may remember as Artemus Gordon, "Inventor" and "Master of Disguise" on the TV show The WIld Wild West (1965-69). Lee's character asks for the help of the FBI and is helped by an agent played by Glenn Ford. One of my favorite movies with Glenn Ford is Lust for Gold (1949) where he plays Jacob Waltz, the famous Dutchman who hides his gold in the Superstition Mountains.

Another film that I really enjoy that also involves Glenn Ford and hidden treasure is the 1953 crime-adventure Plunder of the Sun.
