Maxwell Gail directs the third of his five episodes
3 June 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Counterfeiter" marked the third of five episodes directed by Maxwell Gail. We start with Wojo trying to make sense of Yemana's 'screwed up' filing system: nothing under prostitution, 'C' for call girls, 'S' for streetwalkers, 'M' for massages, 'T' for twins! (Dietrich: "that inscrutable little scamp!"). Al Ruscio (second of five) is a concerned citizen dismayed that he won't be reimbursed for turning in $36 worth of counterfeit money (Harris quotes Clarence Darrow, Dietrich quotes Dick Tracy). Once caught, the elderly counterfeiter (J. Pat O'Malley, second of three) confesses to printing his own money since 1963, but only the amount needed. Jack Riley (second of two) plays a concerned husband, accusing a plastic surgeon (George Pentecost, second of two) of mutilating his wife's face. Of course, the woman (Susan Davis, second of two) signed off on it (now sporting a pair of black eyes), in an attempt to recapture her husband's affection, far too busy with work to grant her the attention she desires. Inspector Luger is happy to be back since his heart trouble, still fretting over his fiancée Ag-enes, but none too fond of Dietrich's statistics ("wise guy know-it-all!").
