159. The Replacement

On the lookout.  Anthony Eisley is on the right.

Valerie Hendricks, Paul Stoner, Karl Elman, et al: Espionage.

Original air date: 7 February 1971.

The FBI has to deal with another espionage ring, this time located in Chicago. Eric Cross was under surveillance, but ends up in a bad altercation in the airport restroom. Hence, Inspector Erskine goes under cover and poses as him.

He manages to find the ringleader, “Constantine,” who turns out to be Valerie Hendricks (Phyllis Thaxter). What makes this story stand out is its humanity, and Ms. Thaxter’s performance. Her character has a brain tumor, and she has been marked for elimination.

And Inspector Erskine has to save her!
