This is a grand old two-parter Ironside episode. The Chief briefly
regains some sensations in his legs. His surgeon-friend Joseph Cotten
suggests a dangerous operation that might help him walk again. As it
happens, a guard at the hospital gets killed during a drug holdup at
the pharmacy. The murderer escapes, but the chief has seen him and
distributes his likeness to the media.
Fussing over the chief is perennial Teutonic nun Lilia Skala, handsome
priest Troy Donahue, and - of course - Ed, Eve, and Mark.
Wouldn't you know, but the cool and composed pharmacist (Margaret
O'Brien, yes, little Tootie from Meet me in St Louis) is in cahoots
with the drug thief. The two fiends plan to substitute a bottle of
Cyanide gas for the oxygen to be used during the Chief's surgery.
Slow moving at times, but a classic.
