Lagniappe is gone now, but his memory lives on.
A great book, and a great movie! The prop went up for sale last year and went for a BUNCH of $$...
It's "Icepick" from Magnum, P.I.!
Good spot! Elisha Cook, Jr. has been in over two hundred old shows and movies, usually as the quirky bit character. He got his first role in 1930 and his last was "Icepick" on Magnum, which he played from 1981-1988.
Great movie I watch it ever chance I get
The best remake ever made!
