For this series, Efrem Zimbalist Jr., was provided with an FBI identification card that had a recent photograph of him, fingerprints from his Army service, and an identification number that was only one digit less than a genuine number. See more »
I remember watching this great crime drama as a child every Sunday night with my Father. He was a big fan of the show and I got to be one also. Ephrem Zimbelist Jr. was great in the part and the stories were always very believable. I think this was one of the best crime dramas ever made. (I'd rank this one up there with Dragnet.)
My complaint is: Please bring back this wonderful series in reruns! I do not think I've seen it since it went off the air in 1974 and I'd love to see it again. It's hard to believe a great show like this was never shown in syndication.
The great shows are the ones that are many times overlooked.
