Trivia

The creators of the show, Richard Levinson and William Link, wanted the character of Mannix never to have a first name (similar to another of their creations, Columbo (1971), who never did acquire a first name). By the time the show got into production, however, Levinson and Link had moved onto other projects, and Mannix had a first initial, "J.," in Mannix: The Name Is Mannix (1967). In this episode he actually uses his first name, "Joe," for the first time. See more »

Pretty good--and, at the time, not so far-fetched.
9 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Neil Diamond apt same as used in some episodes of "Mission: Impossible" why pay the million? Considering that WWII had ended only a couple decades before, "The Many Deaths of Saint Christopher" isn't really quite so far-fetched. Now I am not saying the plot is 100% believable (more about that later), but it was a very good episode of "Mannix".

The show begins with some folks in Europe tracking down some guy--but who they are and why they did this is uncertain. In the next scene, some of these same folks are at the detective agency--and they have a somewhat silly story about needing Mannix's help tracking down an ex-employee. Mannix sees through this and pushes the guys later in the show as to why they REALLY are looking for the man. He's told they are hunting Nazi war criminals and they want Mannix to woo their target's daughter in order to flush him out of hiding. The problem is that he starts to wonder WHO are the ex-Nazis and WHO are really the Nazi hunters.

There are a few problems with the show. The most obvious one is why do they really need Mannix's help?! They are supposedly an international organization with many members...so why Mannix? Second, Mannix meets the lady by following her to a youthful coffee house (where, incidentally, Neil Diamond was playing). But, although I like Mike Connors, I had a hard time seeing a 40-something year-old actor hanging out in a place for hippie-types and other young people. This was rather funny, actually. Still, an exciting episode and one that did keep my interest throughout.
