Storyline

A client named George Hewitt hires Joe Mannix to help find a man whom Hewitt claims has been harassing his wife, such as by accosting her in a taxicab in Chicago. Hewitt then speeds off from their meeting and is killed in a car chase with another vehicle. Mannix tries to discuss Hewitt's concerns with his widow only to find that she denies many of the things Hewitt had told Mannix -- such as never having been in Chicago, and not recognizing the man from a photograph.

Goofs

When Mrs. Hewitt is given the envelope with her husband's effects from the car crash, the envelope shows the date of his death as October 20, 1970. She later tells Joe Mannix that she and her husband had been married only about a month before this death. Yet when Peggy tells Joe information that she obtained about the Hewitts, she tells him that they were married on April 7 - which would place the date of the crash as sometime in May, not October.

They didn't know their Megachiroptera.
27 August 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I know that my summary confused 99.99% of you. But I am a stickler for details. And, at the end of this particular episode, Mannix and some other folks are in a mine filled with fruit bats (megachiroptera) in a cave in Death Valley. The problem is that fruit bats are NOT native to the Americas and COULDN'T have been in the cave--unless some insane bat- lover put them there! Plus, the way these bats were used was very contrived and made for a poor ending. Otherwise a decent enough episode.

The show begins with a man approaching Mannix--saying that a man has been harassing his wife. However, before they are done working on the details of the case, the client sees another guy in a car--and takes off like a bolt of lightning. Soon, the client's car is over an embankment and he's dead. When Mannix talks to the guy's widow, she says that NO ONE has been following her and that the man in the photo that was given to Mannix by the dead husband is no one she knows! Why did the guy REALLY hire Mannix and what's this all about anyway? Tune in to see if you are curious and see what gold and fruit bats have to do with it.
