UNKNOWN RAY WINSTONE GUESTS ON 'THE SWEENEY: LOVING ARMS'

The Sweeney: Loving Arms Year: 1976 Rating: ***1/2

One of the best episodes of the third season for THE SWEENEY, a 1970's British gritty cop series that defined hard-edged dialogue and roving-camera action, is also the strangest... 

With an offbeat plot centering on an ultra-religious (Christian Science) dying woman's desperate husband, who makes toy guns that are partially converted into real ones, kind of...

The catch is they don't shoot properly, and in-between is one of the slickest actors to ever guest in an unknown lanky fella named Ray Sone, who, resembling fan-favorite Dr. Who's Tom Baker, plays a unique kind of top-hat-donning, gun-dealing con artist, selling to punks on the street including a young Ray Winstone... who'd end up playing John Thaw's starring role of Chief Inspector Regan in the horrendous 2013 big screen SWEENEY adaptation... before getting in the kind of mob-centered trouble the otherwise trailing cops, including Thaw's partner Dennis Waterman as Sgt. George Carter, have to help him out of.
