FOLLOW THE SUN – Chicago Style – 1962

This is episode 17 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 stumbles onto a possible big story when he hears a man, Keenan Wynn, play a bit of blues at a party. The man sounds like a famous Chicago blues-man, who had died in a train wreck in the 1930's. Wynn wants nothing to do with Lockwood when the reporter approaches him about doing a bit. Wynn warns him off telling him to drop the matter, or else there will be trouble.

Needless to say this is not the thing to say to a reporter. Lockwood goes to work and digs up all he can. He uncovers pictures etc that prove that Wynn is the supposed dead musician. Lockwood again approaches Wynn and asks to do a story on him.

Wynn tells Lockwood it is a matter of life and death that he retains his new identity and life. Wynn explains, that back in Chicago he had witnessed a gangland murder by mobster, Eduardo Ciannelli. Wynn had reported the incident to the Police, and then fled town. He had used a railroad wreck where dozens had been killed to fake his death. He had been living under a new name etc since.

Lockwood agrees to kill the story and say nothing further about it. He is however too late. His asking of questions and the like had gotten back to Chicago. Next thing we know Wynn and Lockwood are grabbed up and taken to see just in from Chicago, mob boss, Ciannelli.

Both Wynn and Lockwood are convinced they are going for the deep six. It turns out though that Ciannelli has mellowed, and that he just wants to talk about the old times in Chicago. It seems that everyone he knew from the day is now pushing up daisies. Ciannelli has even flown out the members of Wynn's old band for a reunion.

While not quite the ending one was expecting, the episode is still an entertaining bit of early 1960's television.
