WHAT’S IN A NAME

Watching an episode of TV series,CRIMINAL MINDS, I noticed that one of the guest characters was called ‘Herman Scobie.’ Bells rang – of course, George Kennedy’s hook-handed baddie in CHARADE.   image   Then other names popped up in the cast. ‘Hamilton Bartholomew’. – the character played by Walter Matthau.   image And then to complete the CHARADE references came ‘Regina Lampert’ and ‘Peter Joshua’.   image     Oh, and one of the principal characters in Criminal Minds was called ‘Gideon’ – Ned Glass’s name in Charade. No sign of a’ Tex  Panthollow’ , James Coburn’s character .

I think we can assume  the writers of that particular episode of  Criminal Minds were fans!
