SAC Tom Colby (William Reynolds) and Inspector Lewis Erskine (Efrem Zimbalist Jr.), April 1968. 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!

Celeste Yarnall and Norman Fell.

More Erskine-a-go-go!

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!
