Joe tries to help his friend who has begun to go blind.

Trivia: This was Greg Walcott’s fifth of seven appearances in the series. During the 1970s, he served as a great “ham-fisted” foil to Clint Eastwood, appearing in four of Eastwood’s films: The Eiger Sanction (1975), Every Which Way But Loose (1978), Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974) and Joe Kidd (1972). Usually Eastwood would pummel Walcott to a bloody pulp by the end of the picture.
