Here we see Ferdinand Lugnut, midway through his audition to appear in a 1962 episode of The Naked City as a private detective being hunted by the gunsels of Murder, Inc..

His audition was not, however, auspicious. Ferdy failed to make it onto that beloved semi-documentary crime show — unlike such latter stars as William Shatner, Christopher Walken, Robert Duvall and Jon Voight — for he could never quite seem to keep more than a single article of clothing (usually one of his many patterned ties) upon his blocky physique.

The Naked City was not quite ready for a Naked Dick — or a Naked Criminal or Naked Cop or Naked Gun Moll, for that matter. So Mr. Lugnut’s romps in the near-altogether through take after take after take merely ended up on the cutting-room floor of Biograph Studios, and Ferdy remained forgotten.

Until now.
