A wounded British mercenary dies trying to get into the U.S. Embassy in Paris. In his possession is a newspaper clipping with a picture of French ballet dancer Danielle Chabrol. She is engaged in a May-Demcember romance with retired (and widowed) U.S. diplomat Eric Reverson. Erskine and Colby take up the investigation in Hawaii, where Reverson lives. It turns out that Reverson's neighbor, Jim Kellogg, is running an espionage operation and Danielle is supposed to gain access to information and programs Reverson was involved with at the U.S. State Department. Complicating matters is Glen Reverson, the diplomat's grown son, who knows Danielle and who also has feelings for her. Kellogg is more than willing to kill the younger Reverson if he feels Glen is threatening the operation. Written by
The F.B.I. is probably the most interesting show I've ever seen on TV. I guess I find the cases and the way they are investigated with detail interesting. It's like Dragnet without the humor added. There is some humor here and there and I like that. The episode is very good because of the casting. We have one of my all time favorite actors Michael Rennie(the last role he ever did on TV). He plays a retired U.S. diplomat. We also have the very beautiful Claudine Longet(Andy Williams wife at the time), Russell Johnson(Professor from Gilligan's Island) & a young Harrison Ford playing Michael Rennie's son. The story revolves around Russell running an espionage ring and befriending Michael Rennie in the process. Claudine befriends Michael Rennie and Harrison Ford along the way and then she comes to visit Michael to really help out Russell with his espionage ring. They don't count on Harrison being in the mix and he is suspicious of her. Inspector Erskine comes in undercover as a newspaper writer to try and find out what's going on. Harrison finds out what Claudine is up to and Russell finds out and tries to kill Harrison. Claudine tries to gain secret information from Michael. Erskine gathers enough evidence to arrest Claudine. They also capture Russell in a shootout at the end. Claudine does a really nice job in her part. You can hardly believe she is a criminal. Great episode and my personal favorite.
