Cat burglary on the side
29 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

At first Dennis Weaver, Terry Carter and a bunch of other NYPD cops are providing security for a swank society party. But there's more than one group of crooks operating here.

Jack Cassidy guest stars in this McCloud episode as an English Lord with a cash flow problem who supplements his income with a little cat burglary on the side. Watching Cassidy in this role he seems to be paying a homage to Ronald Colman as Raffles.

While plying his avocation Cassidy both steals some blueprints as well as jewelry that he does not know what they mean. At the same time he sees the murder of the host of the party Bernard Behrens by some IRA terrorists.

Society guy Behrens also had an avocation as an arms dealer which got him killed. Chasing Cassidy back to London, Dennis Weaver uncovers what the IRA plans are and its big. Think the classic film Hennessy from the Seventies and you'll know what.

The usual grumpy Chief Clifford is on overtime here. In the middle of the night he's ordered to go to London to supervise McCloud and I do mean immediately. J.D. Cannon leaves home, hearth, and wife Coleen Gray. More than even for him, Cannon is not a happy camper.

Let's say the whole United Kingdom is grateful to the marshal from Taos, New Mexico when this show ends.
