Hey Starkers, found what you were talking about
Thanks for that. Philly... I saw "Struck By Lightening" a couple of times back in the 70's but could never remember what it was called. I was out of town at the time and saw it on a regional network, but when I got back home none of the major networks ran the show or even knew of it... so ever since then I've been curious and wondered if I could get it on VHS, now DVD.
At least now I know its name and can look up on the net for where I might be able to purchase it. I always liked Jack Elam as an actor in Westerns and the like, but Frankie was a totally different role and it captured my interest/imagination.
Again, Philly, thanks for the heads up... and to you also D'n B for the thought.
