Storyline

Joe Mannix is confronted by Harry Bennett, with whom Mannix served in Korea and who was later court-martialed, on testimony from Mannix, for giving information to his captors while a prisoner of war. Bennett claims that he is going to put Mannix through the same ordeal he faced at the hands of the North Koreans, and gives Mannix a name that Bennett claims Mannix will be unable to hold back once he becomes a captive. Then Bennett's threats seem to come true when Mannix is offered a sizable sum of money for the name of an informant within an underworld organization - and is threatened with much worse if he refuses.

Mannix Meets James Bond And The Result Is Not Good
5 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

A total and complete dud. As mentioned by another reviewer this script just doesn't seem to fit Mannix. It's a weird mishmash of Mannix, Mission Impossible and Bond and it's really all over the place.

So a fellow from Joe's Korean war unit shows up and starts all sorts of trouble. This fellow was court martialed and blames Joe so he's out for revenge. For some reason his revenge plot is to drag Joe into some mysterious plot by telling him the name of an informant. Joe is then kidnapped and tortured to find out the info.

This is where things really take a left turn. The evil man behind it all is in a wheelchair and is a stereotypical hybrid of Dr. No, the wheelchair scientist from Rocky Horror and Blofeld. All he's missing is an accent and fluffy white cat. So the story from here involves the baddies torturing Joe harder and harder and eventually kidnapping Peggy. Then it's up to Mannix to solve the mystery and identify the real informant.

Apart from an interesting segment where Joe uses his powers of hearing and smell to figure out where the evil lair is this one is best left on the shelf.
