Storyline

A former priest named James Conway comes to see Joe Mannix because he believes someone is trying to kill him. Conway has concluded that a former penitent, who confessed to a murder, believes that his confession is no longer safe because Conway has left the priesthood. Mannix accepts the case, hoping to find the man and convince him that his secret is safe with Conway. But then Mannix is disturbed to find that someone seems to be trying to kill him, too.

Goofs

At one point the killer tries to shoot Mannix from the second floor of the skid row building where James Conway (Anthony Zerbe) has been hiding. Mannix pursues him out onto a fire escape, but near the end of the chase, a poorly-timed closeup of "Mannix" climbing an exterior ladder clearly reveals that it is a stuntman and not Mike Connors.

Two familiar villains but interestingly one plays a good guy!
6 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In the 1970s, Geoffrey Lewis and Anthony Zerbe were very familiar faces on TV. In most cases, the two played heavies--yet here, Zerbe plays against type and is a man who used to be a priest. As for Lewis, he's an assassin--the sort of tole that IS more familiar for him.

The show begins with a car deliberately trying to run over a guy (Zerbe). Soon this intended victim approaches Mannix. It seems that he's an ex-priest and he thinks someone from his past is trying to kill him. It seems that about six months ago, some guy came into the confessional and discussed a murder! Now that the priest left the priesthood, perhaps that is why someone is trying to kill the guy.

This show has a very interesting plot as well as an odd dilemma. It's well worth seeing--especially to see Mr. Zerbe NOT being an evil scum-bag! Well made and worth seeing. However, the miracle long- distance shot from Mannix with his snub-nosed .38 is a bit ridiculous!
