It Takes a Thief Fan Tributes
2 A Klopfer from McLean, VA 22101: Great show; great tribute site!
1 Joe Posner from San Jacinto, CA: As a teenager, I wanted to be Robert Wagner/Alexander Mundy.
He had a cool "job," a hip haircut, , and he got all the girls.
My favorite "It Takes a Thief" moment took place in an episode whose name escapes me.
Our hero is in some quasi-mythical Europran country, interacting with a beautiful young woman in a shop.
She's complaining that all the local men are boring, ugly, and have crooked teeth.
Wagner/Mundy flashes his fabulous smile. "MY teeth aren't
crooked," he exclaims.
A spontaneous makeout session takes place!
