156. Center Of Peril

 

Porter Bent, Mark Donald Gaynor, Jay Richard Yarborough: Interstate Transportation of Stolen Property, Major Theft.

Original air date: 17 January 1971.

Inspector Lewis Erskine doing what he loves the second most: Going undercover. This time he is an art expert certifying that a stolen painting is genuine.

Vic Morrow is the chief bad guy. He, of course, was Sgt. Chip Saunders on the long-running series Combat. By 1971, war dramas were unpopular because of the Vietnam War. Hence, Mr. Morrow goes into the world of art.

Inspector Lewis Erskine also crosses paths with Yvonne Shelby, played by Susan Howard. Ms. Howard is most famous for her role as Donna Culver Krebbs in the prime-time soap opera Dallas. Here, she plays a woman involved with the art thieves. Inspector Erskine had arrested her character on another charge, eight years before, in Seattle.
