157. The Eye Of The Needle

Delivering the money.

Eugene Fordyce, Paul Menard, James Lee Vaughn: Extortion.

Original air date: 24 January 1971.

The good inspector rescues a wealthy surgeon from extortionists, hunting him down in the wilderness. This episode plays just like The Fugitive (1963-67), especially the ending. Even the pursued, Dr. Herbert Barth (played by Richard Kylie), is a pediatrician.

The difference? Inspector Lewis Erskine and his associates are chasing after the extortionists, not the doctor! This is a well-done episode. The action sequences take place in the mountains of Washington State, and there are additional scenes in Utah.
