Interesting episode from final season of Mannix.
10 April 2014 | by (nuneaton england) – See all my reviews

The wonderful Diana Hyland and reliable Dabney Coleman play a couple who,believing they had lost their son years earlier,receive a ransom note from someone claiming to be holding their son captive.The two stars convincingly portray the angst this might cause in a script written by Mann Rubin who wrote the Harry O episode "The Confetti People" the same year again for Hyland.Diana Hyland was a Quinn Martin regular appearing several times in "The Fugitive" and playing the alien leader in the "Summit Meeting" episode of the Invaders.She was taken too soon at the age of just 41 years."The Slap Maxwell Story" is probably Dabney Coleman's best work though he made countless guest appearances and played the boss in the film "Nine to Five".Keen eyed viewers might notice how Diana Hylands dress changes from one scene to the next when she shows Mannix the ransom note by the swimming pool but overall this episode is a good one and well worth watching.
