"The Big Hands" begins with a woman being found strangled in a hotel. First, the detectives need to figure out who this woman was. Second, they need to figure out who did it. At first it seems like an easy case, as the woman was in the midst of a divorce and her husband was known to be violent. However, this turns out to be a dead end. To find out who did it, see the show for yourself! This show suffers from a couple problems. The comic relief (using Cliff Arquette) isn't funny. Also, if you are looking for a logical reason for the woman's death you won't find it--and even the killer has no idea why he did it! Still, like any "Dragnet" episode, it's still well worth seeing.

By the way, Clifford Arquette was also known as 'Charlie Weaver'--a character he played on "Hollywood Squares" for many years as well as on other television shows. Arquette was the grandfather of David and Rosanne Arquette, by the way.
