In this sketchy silver-haired saga, three retired San Diego lawmen (Dennis Weaver, Robert Guillaume and Pat Morita) and a career con man (James Coburn)—hey, it takes all kinds—band together to hunt down some bad guys.

This failed pilot has some fun gauging the length of its protagonists' teeth. Coburn refers to Weaver and Guillaume as "the Poli-Grip twins."

The script is flimsy and formulaic, but these four frisky old dogs almost manage to make this trite material seem like new tricks.
