Eye Operation
19 August 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In the second of Bill Elliott's quintet of police stories his character surname was changed from Flynn to Doyle and he was to stay Doyle for the rest of this series. Why it was changed God only knows, but these films were nothing that the public couldn't get on television.

This time Lieutenant Doyle of the Los Angeles Police Department is called in on a case that looks like suicide. The woman's blind son Tom Drake called it in after discovering his mother's body and an open gas jet. The coroner even says it was suicide, but Elliott keeps investigating.

Of course it was murder and of course Elliott first zeroes in on Drake because he needed his mother's insurance money for the operation to cure his blindness. But in the end it turns into something entirely different.

Nice, but nothing special.
