Storyline

Manhattan is awash with re-cut stolen gems after a legit jeweler is killed, but Kojak ties the honest gem-smith's silent partner to Lawrence, a shady power broker. The partner was "The Prettiest Girl in New York," then fell on hard times, but was taken into the gem business by the honest Max Krouse. Now Celia Lamb is back living high under Lawrence's oily thumb. Kojak perceives the guilt Celia holds about her savior Max, and hopes to use it to bring down Lawrence and the gem chop shops.

Elegant society crook
1 May 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Guest stars Lola Albright and Robert Webber dominate this episode of Kojak about a former top flight fashion model and an elegant high society criminal both who are involved with the murder of John Silo a rich jeweler with a factory.

Silo's business has been taken over by Webber and his gang who use it to recut stolen jewels and sell them. When Silo got curious he got dead.

Albright is on the Board of Directors of Silo's company and it is through her that Webber got his foot in the door. Telly Savalas has to work on her conscience which is troubling her no doubt. She's gets a really great role as a woman who was in the beauty business and has found what a fickle business that is.

Webber throughout his career has played many a criminal type, he oozes charm and sanctimoniousness from his every pore. The guy is a piece of work, police in Philadelphia where he formerly operated know what he did, but that he was so clever never to be near the scene of any crime. His minions even staged Silo's murder to look like a mugging gone bad, but the forensics betray.

In fact there are some nice scenes where Kojak takes note of a bright young patrolman who discovered the body and was most observant. A future member of Manhattan South if Telly Savalas has his way.
