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

Thomas Banacek(George Peppard) is called in on a mysterious case involving a truck filled with a highly valuable collection of paintings that arrives at its destination, only for it to be discovered empty! Not a trace of them can be found, though Banacek must still look at the list of suspects, which includes the woman(played by Penny Fuller) in charge of the move, as well as the father and son team that owns the trucking business, the Trotters(played by Lloyd Gough and Mike Farrell). Will Thomas solve this mystery in time to collect his big reward? Intriguing premise at the core here, though plot does ramble on a bit before the typically clever solution.
