One of the best..
4 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yeah, I know, I say that about a lot of them.. An LA based firm of about 30 employees has been audited and has discovered a substantial leak of funds from somewhere but cannot detect where the money is going, so they bring in our two heroes to do some questioning of three employees "most likely to" because of their positions of access.. Jack Webb always has the best lines, suggesting to the owner that perhaps he likes his employees too much to really know them.. The 3 main employees regular Dragnet staples, Virginia Vincent (this time in era-correct horn rimmed glasses as if we won't recognize her- I've always liked her since I first saw her in the 1958 classic, "I Want To Live"), Vic Perrin, (who in this episode is married to another Dragnet regular, Virginia Gregg and is followed by Friday and Gannon while he drives his 9-year old clunker, a 1959 Ford 4-door sedan with white walls and no wheel covers), and Julian Burton (the smooth, cocky ladies man and warehouse manager). The guilty party eventually breaks down and confesses when confronted after being followed to a local "poker" establishment, and plays the part emotionally brilliant as he admits his embezzlement and gambling addiction, and the lecture from Friday and Gannon which ensues could actually be applied to any addiction-- the denial, the guilt, the pattern.. Definitely one of the best of the 1968 season!
