L. Nimoy as a Hit-man
15 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

CAIN'S HUNDRED – Murder by Proxy – 1962

Cain's Hundred was a series that ran for 30 episodes during 1961 and 1962. Peter Mark Richman stars as a former mob lawyer who now works for the Government. He switched teams after his fiancée had been killed in a mob hit. This one is episode 19 of the series.

Richman is after Mob boss Charles McGraw for ordering the murder of a witness. McGraw though, has the perfect alibi as he was in prison at the time on a tax beef. Also up on the murder rap is hit-man Leonard Nimoy.

Richman believes he has McGraw nailed with the testimony of Fay Spain, the girlfriend of the murdered witness. McGraw's lawyer, Oliver McGowan, however rips into Spain and proves her evidence false. It seems that Spain was willing to do anything to get even with the man she believes ordered her lover's death.

Richman's case looks like is about to go for a deep six when another witness steps up. The witness, Juanita Moore, had seen the dead man in the company of hit-man Nimoy on the day of his death. This puts a fright into McGraw, who has one of his mob threaten to kill Moore's child if she does not change her testimony.

The judge on the case, Regis Toomey, smells a rat with the changed story. He has a private talk with Moore and gets the truth out of her. She also recalls that there was another man with Nimoy at the time. The man turns out to be Mob book-keeper, Gerald Hiken. Hiken had been a friend of the witness, and been used by the mob to flush the man out of hiding so Nimoy could kill him.

Nimoy and McGraw are convicted while Hiken is arrested and charged.

A much better show that I was expecting with some nicely handled courtroom scenes. It is no Perry Mason, then what is? But it does pass the time rather well.
