The G-men in action! Their hair would soon change; it would be parted differently. William Reynolds (left) is looking more like Stephen Brooks here. Nice portrait!
Julie (Celeste Yarnall, left) and Ken Haney (Norman Fell) dance at storm. The Haney character ends up a blackmail victim in all of this. Note the weird-looking mustache Mr. Fell is wearing!
84. The Mercenary
John Thomas Whiting: Espionage - Murder.
Original air date: 28 April 1968
This episode was not rerun.
Inspector Lewis Erskine uncovers a Communist spy ring. Someone's pretty wife is the lure in blackmailing top secret information. One contractor has already been murdered, and another one is being shaken down. The episode boasts a fine cast, and is a great ending to a good season.
- No 1957 Ford Ranchero, but Suzanne Pleshette! Much prettier than any car! She is gorgeous looking in this episode, but does not seem to be doing a whole lot here. She plays the widow of the murdered contractor.
- 1959 Alert! John Thomas Whiting has an alias of Hardesty. This is the same surname as the character Jimmy Stewart played in The FBI Story!
- This episode was rerun on TV Land in 2000 or 2001 as part of a special event. We hope to get more information on this.
- Norman Fell makes the second of his three appearances on this series. And is his moustache weird looking!
- Richard Anderson makes the second appearance on this show this season, and the third overall. He continued to make guest appearances all the way to the final season.
