He’s not doing what it looks like he’s doing

In one of the most  obscure and impossible to locate television movies ever… or at least of the ones featuring Sue Lyon… TOWING, about barmaids trying to stop car thieves using tow trucks, is on top of that list… Thankfully we got a few captures of one promotional scene where the camera pans forward on Sue and her boyfriend rested on her lap, both listening to jazzy elevator music… Hopefully, in the future, we can find more captures, and the movie itself…
