Robert Vaughn as a Killer
5 March 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

FOLLOW THE SUN – A Rage for Justice - 1961

This is the first episode from the 1961-62 series, FOLLOW THE SUN. The series, which ran for 30 episodes, follows a trio of free-lance magazine writers. The three are played by Barry Coe, Gary Lockwood and Brett Halsey. The gimmick here is that they are based in Honolulu. Also with recurring roles are Gigi Perreau as their secretary, and Jay Lanin as their contact with the local Police. Of course the three newsmen are always getting involved with the usual assortment of nasty types.

Reporter Gary Lockwood sees a famous opera singer, Ilka Windish, getting off a jet at Honolulu airport. He gives one of his partners, Brett Halsey a call. Halsey thinks there might be a good story in the singer. She has spent the last 8-9 months in a mental hospital with a breakdown.

Halsey is soon on her trail and follows her out that evening. Windish heads to the home of Robert Vaughn. Once there, she pulls out a pistol and aims at the man through a window. Halsey steps up and stops her. He then escorts her to his office. He tells her he can call the Police, or she can explain what she was doing.

Windish explains that her daughter had been married to Vaughn, but had been killed in a car accident while Vaughn was at the wheel. Windish believes that Vaughn had really killed her daughter, even though the death had been ruled an accident.

Halsey agrees to look into the matter himself and arranges a meeting between Vaughn and Windish. The meeting is short and to the point, as Windish accuses Vaughn of killing her daughter for her sizable estate. Halsey takes an instant dislike to the smarmy Vaughn and thinks Windish might be on to something.

Halsey and Windish hire a private eye type, Howard Caine, to keep an eye on Vaughn. Vaughn is trailed to a payphone and the number he calls is traced. It leads to pretty Nita Talbot. Halsey and Windish believe that Talbot had been stepping out with Vaughn at the time of his wife's death. But can they prove it? The affair turns out to be true. Windish confronts Talbot who quickly informs Vaughn about Windish poking around. Vaughn decides that Talbot is too much of a loose end and kills her. Now Halsey and Windish are left with no way to prove their theory.

With the help of Halsey's Police Detective pal, Jay Lanin, they pull Vaughn in for a talk. They tell him that Talbot had been found badly beaten, but still alive. They plan on interviewing her shortly. Needless to say the swine, Vaughn folds like a house of cards and confesses to killing his wife.

This is the 13th episode I've caught so far, and they have all been entertaining. Howard Caine, the private eye in the episode was known to fans of the comedy series, Hogan's Heroes. Caine played SS Major, Wolfgang Hochstetter.
