JOHN THAW DIGS MYRA FRANCIS ON 'THE SWEENEY: COUNTRY BOY'

Myra Francis on The Sweeney Year: 1975 Grade: A

THE SWEENEY: COUNTRY BOY has our London boys joined by a well-dressed/educated tech guy, naïvely grabbing the front car seat where only John Thaw's Det. Insp. Jack Regan rides...

And as the central crime involves banks robbed by an inside man using underground wiring, the plot thickens when Myra Frances is introduced as... well... at first the flirtatious Regan thinks she's merely the annoying new guy's old college friend...

But Thaw thaws out to Det. Sgt. David Keel (Robert Swann) before he's shot in a warehouse and laid out, bleeding badly, exposed in the open: And with every attempt Regan and Dennis Waterman's Det. Sgt. George Carter make to locate the hidden shooter, another bullet's intentionally fired into another non-vital yet painful spot... 

A dead-eye warning of what could happen if they don't back off (foreshadowing Stanley Kubrick's FULL METAL JACKET with Dorian Harewood's brutally tortuous, drawn-out demise)...: But it's the very, very end when the lovely Myra Francis's Dr. Liz Keel tells Regan who she really is: He simply didn't know the badly wounded (though not dying) victim has the same last name as the now deeply concerned female surgeon — a last name she wasn't born with, providing our famously womanizing Regan the epitome of not only the perfect girl who got away, but one that wasn't his to begin (or end up) with... For all the SWEENEY ingenues, she had both looks and brains... The genuine article — with perfect punctuation!
