Gregg Guest-Stars For The Second Time In Three Weeks
4 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't believe the same guest star was used two times in three weeks, but that's the case here with Virgina Gregg. This episode ran March 23, 1967. Gregg was just in the March 9th episode, being the key witness in a chain of candy story robberies. Did they think people wouldn't notice? I see on her biography here on IMDb that she worked 13 times over a couple of years on this show. In November of 1968, she guest-starred two weeks in a row, playing two different characters! She must have stock in Dragnet Productions!

The story involves "Mrs. Francine Graham" (Gregg) calling police and saying a burglar stole her expensive Imperial Jade from her safe. She put in an insurance claim for $200,000. After investigation by Friday and Gannon, things don't look kosher to them, even when they find the guy who broke into the home.

Note: Keye Luke, of Charlie Chan movie fame, has a short scene in here.
