The Missing Money
28 February 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Thomas Banacek(George Peppard) is called in by a casino in Las Vegas that has had a most unusual robbery of a million dollars from a display case in the middle of the day. It went missing the same time a big money slot machine payed out to a man who didn't want his picture taken by the casino photographer(played by Margot Kidder) that Thomas becomes involved with, even going on an airplane ride with her as pilot that ends up having been(almost fatally) sabotaged. This sends Banacek on a new path to determine just who, how, and why this clever theft was pulled off. Entertaining episode with Kidder quite appealing leading to the ingenious resolution.
