Leonard Part 6

Bill Cosby produced, furnished the story, and plays the lead in this comedy-action movie, written by Jonathan Reynolds and directed by Paul Weiland. Cosby is a retired secret agent and restaurateur who pits his skill against a female vegetarian villain (Gloria Foster) who manipulates lobsters, frogs, ostriches, and other animals in a plot to take over the world. Joe Don Baker is the hero’s boss, Tom Courtenay is his English butler, and Elmer Bernstein supplies the music. Full of Coca-Cola ads, the film was something of an embarrassment for many of its participants; Cosby himself apologized for it on TV. (JR)
