A fun early 1950s show with Alan Hale, Jr.
22 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

Biff Baker is an agent for a large American import/export company. He and his wife travel throughout Europe buying a wide variety of materials and items (e.g., lace and clay). And, of course, they get involved in intrigues at every location. I was not familiar with this series and stumbled across it on the Matinée Classics web site, which has beautiful prints of four episodes. The Blue Mosque takes place in Cairo and revolves around a stolen truck and a terrorist group, Grey Market is about those who prey upon refugees in Marseilles (Jay Novello does a wonderful job as a particularly nasty crook), Crash Landing concerns the rescue of an American pilot who crash landed in Czechoslovakia, and Mona Lisa about art works stolen during World War II

I often watched Gilligan's Island and have always liked Alan Hale, Jr.'s performances. In this one, he is a big jovial American who doesn't go looking for trouble but trouble always finds him. I liked the interaction between Biff and his wife Louise – they laughed a lot together and cuddled a lot. I'm surprised this show lasted only one season, as it's a fun watch.
