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.)

I remember this show and I wish it would come out on DVD, it was an interesting show at the time long before the James Bond, Matt Helm, and Our Man Flint Films came out. It also came out long before TV shows like the Wild Wild West, Man From Uncle, Girl From Uncle,Seacret Agent Man, The Avengers, and even Get Smart. I have looked for this series for years and have not been able to find it on DVD or VHS. I wish someone had an episode list of the whole series and would publish it on the IMDb. I did not remember David Hedison being in the show the one that I remembered was Suzana Puluzzi because she was so good looking back then.
