227. The Killing Truth
Joseph Edward Holloway: Assault on a Federal Officer; Extortion
Original air date: 9 December 1973
This episode was not rerun
A judge is target of someone seeking retribution for a verdict that happened 10 years beforehand. The judge himself was targeted for murder, but a Federal officer is wounded as a result.
In fact, Joseph Holloway’s father, who was scheduled for parole, died two weeks before that date of a heart attack. That has led to the younger Holloway to seek retribution.
And that drags in Inspector Lewis Erskine and SAC Chris Daniels. It seems Mr. Daniels studied the case in law school, and that the judge was considered harsh. Now, the Feds have to deal with the person seeking to eliminate the judge.
And William Reynolds is in this episode? WOW!!!! And this was the day he turned 42 years old!
We’re sorry for the less-than-perfect images. This was all we could get, but at least we got something instead of nothing! Thanks to Darrell Fung for his assistance!
- One of Audrey Landers' earliest appearances on TV. She was 17 at the time. She provides a major supporting role, and a great acting role!
- Lloyd Nolan (1902-85) was a veteran actor who appeared on the first TV show featuring an African-American star, Julia (1968-71). His last role was in Hannah And Her Sisters (1986). He provides a fantastic performance.
