THE DETECTIVES – Two Time Loser - 1959

This one is episode 9 of the 97 episode run of, THE DETECTIVES. This series starred Robert Taylor and ran between 1959 and 1962. The first two seasons ran at a half hour and the last season had a runtime of an hour. The series followed the detective squad in a big city precinct. Cast regulars included, Mark Goddard, Russell Thorson, Tige Andrews, Lee Farr and Adam West. Robert Taylor headlines as Police Captain, Matt Holbrook.

Two time loser Bruce Gordon is being transported to trial on his third felony rap. The man escapes and beats the feet into the city. He steals a car and heads for the city limits. Gordon though has had the bad luck to steal an automobile with low fuel. He pulls into a gas station to fuel up. The gas jockey, Ralph Moody, recognizes the escapee and puts a call through to the Police. Gordon spots the play and puts a .45 round into his back.

Detectives Lee Farr and Russell Thorson are soon on the case. All the roads etc out of the city are covered. The Police assume that Gordon has gone to ground, but where? They check out his old haunts and come up with a possible hideout Gordon might try for. A woman Gordon used to see back in the past, Claire Carlton, seems the likely spot to stake out. Sure enough, Gordon appears and heads for Carleton's rooms. Inside waiting, is a half dozen cops with drawn weapons.

The plan however goes amiss when a passing off duty cop spots Gordon on the street, and goes for him. This results in shots being fired and Gordon beating the feet into a local school. He grabs the school cleaning woman as a hostage. "Back off or I kill her!" Gordon shouts.

Captain of Detectives Robert Taylor now shows and the Police must decide on how to save the hostage. Needless to say, a plan is hatched and the woman is retrieved unhurt. Gordon is cuffed for a date with the judge. With the new charges, it is death row beef for the swine.
