Mac for the defense
2 December 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Rock Hudson gets a little too close for this one. An old girl friend, singer Barbara McNair is accused of murdering her husband whose body has not been found. But the District Attorney Martin E. Brooks is hot to trot to indict her. Nevertheless the old criminal attorney now Commissioner of San Francisco's police Stewart McMillan is aroused and the resources of the San Francisco Police Department are turned into use for the defense. Even Sergeant Enright follows orders, but he thinks his boss is putting his job in jeopardy.

A couple of vocals from Barbara McNair is an asset to this episode. I kind of saw where this was going, but it was still an enjoyable ride.
