Did You Know?


This episode is told in a "Sam Spade" style, with the detective (Eddie Cain) as the main character (with a voice over), and David merely as one of the suspects. See more »


As Eddie and David drive past Eddie's office, Eddie's voice over says that he (Eddie) has a spare gun in his office - he had lost his main piece earlier - but he couldn't go in because the police were there after having discovered the body. Yet later, he has a gun just before the climactic fight scene. There is no indication in the story about how he got one. See more »


[Eddie Cain has been inspected for weapons]
Sheehan: You're not carrying today, shamus. That's very smart.
Eddie Cain: Just lucky, Irish.
Sheehan: The name's Mr. Sheehan. Come on, rent-a-cop.

The Private Eye
22 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Jack Colvin(Jack McGee) took a turn directing this episode, which stars Cameron Mitchell as a private detective named Eddie Cain, who tells the police a tale about how he was hired by a wealthy woman(played by Donna Marshall) to investigate a threatening letter that involves her beautiful daughter Vicki(played by Jennifer Holmes). Also implicated in this plot is the mysterious gardener named David(Bill Bixby) whom he can find no information about. Both men will team up to get to the bottom of this mystery, which will involve ruthless and unexpected suspects indeed...Nice change-of-pace episode with good direction and performances trying to emulate a Sam Spade type of mystery.
