Someone has been making threatening telephone calls to Joe Mannix, and this mysterious person begins to take shots at him, too -- one of which cuts down Joe's friend Barry Nolan, who runs the photography shop across from Joe's office. That incident brings Joe into a chance encounter with renowned magazine photographer Jill Packard, who eventually begins a friendship with him. But Joe begins to suspect that there's more to the threats than someone who just has a grudge against him, when one of the shots nearly hits Jill, too. Written by aldanoli

The last 15 minutes pretty much ruin this one.
13 July 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Victor French and Loretta Swit star in this below average episode of "Mannix". It's a shame, as the first 2/3 of the program is pretty good- -it's just the final portion that pretty much ruins everything.

The show begins with Mannix receiving a threatening call from an electronically altered voice. Whoever it is on the phone, they tell Mannix that they're going to kill him. In fact, shortly after this, a bullet nearly gets him at his door.

At the same time, Mannix has been hired by some rich guy (French) to look for his wife. How this plays into the other story is something you EXPECT to happen.

From meeting the client, Mannix visits a local photography store. There, Mannix spots a guy with a sniper rifle when he looks through a telephoto lens. Mannix screams at the owner to duck and a bullet soon races past Mannix and hits the owner--killing him. Mannix assumes the bullet was meant to him considering the phone call and the other shot taken at him.

After the shooting, a woman (Swit) comes into the store to retrieve her developed film. Little does she or Mannix realize that this will bring them inextricably together...and then comes the stupid part. What is the stupid part? Well, I don't want to go into great details--suffice to say that the villain doesn't kill when he has a chance but manages to come up with a super-complicated method from which there are opportunities to escape!!!! Why, for once, can't a villain just blast the hero in the head what would happen in real life?!
