This was one of the programs that Bobby Rupp and murder victims Herbert, Nancy and Kenyon Clutter watched the evening that they were killed by Richard Eugene Hickcok and Perry Edward Smith (November 15th, 1959). Bobby Rupp was Nancy Clutter's boyfriend and went home before the killers arrived. (This was the infamous murder written about by Truman Capote's in his book (and subsequent movie) In Cold Blood.)

There were many many shows that most people don't remember. This is one of them, but not because it wasn't a great show but because it aired in the days when there weren't many channels available plus the fact that it only lasted a mere 16 episodes. I have four episodes on tape and wish I could have seen the other episodes. It was a very well-made series with David Hedison as a double agent under the guise of a talent agent. This was Hedison's first TV series and he would later become famous for his role in 'Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea', which would last for an amazing 110 episodes. If I could choose which TV series I would like to see on DVD, 'Five Fingers' would be at the top of my list.
