Excellent episode from early seasons
3 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of the better episodes from the early seasons of the series, this was memorable for Leonard Nimoy's appearance. Although he'd been in a handful of motion pictures before this, including FRANCIS GOES TO WEST POINT, this was his first time in a TV series. Also in entertaining turns as hotel clerks were Mel Ford playing a partially deaf character and Peter Leeds, an actor you might recognize from his hundreds of TV and movie roles, as an inebriated night man (incorrectly listed in the credits, I believe, as "George" which was the name of one of the robbers.) Leeds' scenes with Webb were real gems and showcased Webb's talents much better than his typical wooden "just the facts" acting style for which he's best known on this show. All in all, the episode is a fine piece of work and illustrates why the series was so great for so long. Dale Roloff
