Storyline

When an old man wearing a strange-looking belt is found dead of natural causes, fraud is suspected and the case is turned over to major frauds division. Investigation leads to a Dr. Gantman, whose useless treatment of a blind seven-year-old girl with a pituitary tumor is preventing its timely surgical removal. A break comes when a television repairman, who makes "electro-charged oscillator belts" for the doctor, is arrested for bookmaking and is willing to testify against him. The bookie isn't needed after a courtroom demonstration by the doctor, and participation by the prosecution, results in the doctor's undoing. Written by bobbymaxwell

Trivia

This episode was a pilot for another potential Jack Webb show about the Los Angeles District Attorneys Office and was directed by Webb himself who rarely directed his own productions of that era. Malloy and Reed are only in the episode for less than a minute at the end without speaking, probably meaning that the episode was assembled from the rejected/discarded pilot. See more »
