Storyline

A controversial television interviewer telephones a shadowy figure named Harry Armitage for the "hot seat" segment of his show, accusing Armitage of bribery and influence peddling. As he speaks to Armitage on live television, shots ring out and Armitage is later found dead in his apartment. A woman named Muriel Price is found running from the scene, and her gun is determined to be the murder weapon. Joe Mannix, who had just been hired by Armitage before his death, is then hired by Muriel's twin sister, Valerie, to try to prove that her sister is innocent. Written by aldanoli

GREAT Episode .............. One Glaring Flaw !!
13 February 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Overall, this is an OUTSTANDING episode !! One of the best !! It flows, has great continuity, and is entertaining. It's a "Who dun it" episode, where Mannix finally see's through the killer's alibi of having been on TV, in front of 2 million viewers, when the killing takes place. Mannix figures out that the killer (a television "bombastic" talk show host named Ted Hackett, played very nicely by Don DeFore) rigged a playback of the "killing", which he played via a telephone answering machine, when he called his home phone, from on the air. The "killing" was rigged using actual edited phone conversations from the victim, with gunshots added. The premise is GREAT, but there is ONE glaring flaw ..... after the playback of the "rigged" killing, when Hackett calls the police, and tells them to go to the victims house, an autopsy on the body would CLEARLY show that the victim was NOT recently murdered, but, in fact, was dead for some time !! But, none the less, this, obvious, fact, does NOT detract much from an, otherwise, outstanding episode.
