Goofs

Most of this episode supposedly takes place in a small town 100 miles north of Los Angeles, but when Joe Mannix is pursuing Paul Parrish, a road sign clearly shows the location as the "Mulholland Highway." Mulholland Highway is a road through a rugged part of Griffith Park in Los Angeles, about halfway between Highway 101 and Interstate 5 just north of Hollywood. See more »

Enjoyable, though a bit weak when you think about the plot.
2 September 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When this show begins, you see a cop running off with some stolen money- -or at least that's what it appears to be. Throughout this episode, however, Mannix insists that the guy who is now wanted by the rest of the police force DIDN'T steal the money and kill the man who'd stolen the money. And, although ALL the evidence pretty much proves the man is guilty, Mannix has a hunch--and everyone in TV land KNOWS that this means Mannix will be right. To me, this is a weak plot because the whole 'my gut instinct is more reliable than evidence' angle is tired and difficult to believe. Still, however, if you can ignore the improbability of all this, the show is entertaining. Additionally, it's nice to see Ruth Roman and Robert Lansing (a very underrated actor of the 60s) guest starring in this one.

By the way, through season one and two, Mannix was routinely bashed over the head and knocked out. In real life, such a person would have tremendous brain damage or would be dead. The folks who made the show seem to have noticed this and in season three and much of season four, Mannix's cranium is relatively unscathed. However, in a return to old form, episodes 4.15, 4.16 and 4.17 have Mannix getting bashed in the skull once again!!
