That criminal was THRUSH agent Victor Gervais, but one day he would gain "superstar notoriety" as the Clown Prince of Crime, The Joker.
And having made that claim, it made me wonder who else might have been the target of Gervais; who else might have had clown dolls made in their likeness.
And that's what inspired this Super Six List:
SIX OTHER "LIVING" CLOWN DOLLS
1] MORTIMER LOVELY
'BURKE'S LAW' - "WHO KILLED ½ OF GLORY LEE?"
2] OLIVER NUGENT
'ONE OF THE BOYS'
When we met Oliver, he was living in New Jersey with his grandson who was attending Sheffield College. But that doesn't mean he couldn't have been a resident of Manhattan decades before. So it's pozz'ble, just pozz'ble, that he served on the Gervais jury.
3] MANNY CORDOBA
'THE SINGLE GUY'
4] ED SULLIVAN
'THE TOAST OF THE TOWN'
Besides his work on his own variety show and appearances on variety programs and talk shows, we know there is a televersion of the great Stoneface thanks to his appearances on 'The Phil Silvers Show' ('Bilko') and 'Mr. Adams And Eve'. Many times celebrities are excused from jury duty, but this may have been a case where he was allowed to serve.
5] DETECTIVE SGT. MICHAEL DOHENY
'MAGNUM, P.I.' - "LAURA"
Sgt. Doheny was the detective who caught Victor Gervais for whatever crime it was that got him sent to prison. He was a young, up-and-coming detective at the time and this was his first big case.
6] BILLY JIM HAWKINS
'HAWKINS ON MURDER'
Gervais' plans for revenge weren't limited to the judge, the prosecutor, the detective, and the jury - he also blamed his own defense attorney for his being convicted.
Since all of these characters were seen on TV after the aborted attempt by Victor Gervais to kill them all, it's likely he never got the chance to carry out the death sentence on the others who were not listed here.
