The first half of this episode is alive and inspired. The second half can only be described as disappointing.

KAOS has been knocking over CONTROL armored cars, so Larabee and Smart have been assigned to make sure this one goes through. It doesn't.

When Max returns to CONTROL, he goes into the phone booth at CONTROL headquarters (one of the rare times we see him in the famed phone booth seen in the opening titles) only to discover it isn't working. That's because CONTROL is out of money and has moved their operations into the elevator. There's a hilarious scene where the Chief gathers all the CONTROL agents in the elevator for a meeting (except Larabee, whose office is on TOP of the elevator) including Adams' brother Dick Yarmy as Foster. CONTROL's only hope appears to be to convince old time prospector C. Errol Madre ("Highway Patrol" star Broderick Crawford) that Max is really his old pal, who's been in jail for 15 years. Max of course is a dead ringer for the man and it gives him a chance to whip out his Humphrey Bogart impression again.

Unfortunately, the inspiration pretty much ends there. Other than a good meeting scene, Crawford is given nothing to do and the way he is ultimately dispatched by the Mexican banditos led by Goldmouth (Don Diamond) is a real letdown. There's also a lot of padding in this section, including traveling shots of 86 and Madre traveling with a burro that are reused. While its always a pleasure seeing Adams drag out his Bogart and nice to see him given a Oscar winning guest star, its just too bad they didn't do more with this opportunity.
