Storyline

A deadly love triangle sucks in Kimble as fall guy for a murder. An ambitious lounge singer romances the fugitive hoping to force the hand of her married lover into divorcing his rich, disabled wife Norma for the duplicitous songbird. When that scheme fails, the young mistress convinces the reluctant husband to use convicted killer Richard Kimble - to permanently remove Norma from between the illicit couple and the wife's millions.

2/28/67 "Goodbye My Love"
4 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

We are a year and a half before Jack Lord, who had always been looking for a big TV series success in a show he could own a piece of, (which is why he turned down the roles of Ben Casey and Captain Kirk), got a call that a show based in Hawaii wanted him for the lead. Here he's still stuck playing bad guys in other people's shows. Here he's a scheming husband trying to get rid of his crippled wife, (played by Patricia Smith) so he can marry a sexy young chanteuse, (Marlyn Mason). They find out who Kimble is and Lord hires him to work around his mansion so that he can be easily framed for the murder. It winds up with Kimble fighting Lord to protect Smith in a creepy sequence, made more so by the image in one's mind of Lord as McGarrett, enemy of criminals and protector of innocent victims. The ending is something of a disappointment, more a whimper than a bang.

Some ironies: Both David Janssen and Jack Lord had guested on Naked City in different episodes Lord was in "The Human Trap" (11/30/60), based on the Cheryl Crane case in which a daughter stabs a playboy to defend her mother. Janssen was in "A Wednesday Night Story" (11/1/61) in which he played a philandering husband who wants to kill his wife so he can marry the family's pretty Swedish governess. And Patricia Smith played a policeman in the first regular episode of Hawaii Five-0, "Full Fathom Five", (9/26/68), about a Bluebeard who marries rich women and then kills them to inherit their money. What goes around comes around- and around and around- in the wacky world of television.
