In the last "McMillan and Wife" episode (Rock Hudson carried on with "McMillan" for one more year), Mac goes into uniform as a Navy lawyer on a murder case. The woman on trial is a single lieutenant who claims she shot a man who broke into her on-base house and tried to rape her. The prosecutor doesn't believe her story, and neither does Mac -- but for very different reasons. The unusual-caliber pistol that fired the fatal shot isn't Navy issue, and the dead man was working for the Judge Advocate General's office. Mac calls on the San Francisco Police Department, which uncovers a smuggling ring and a reason the woman would have lied in her testimony. Written by Peter Harris

At the 90-minute mark, Mac, Enright and some San Francisco cops wait in a railway car for smugglers to transfer their loot. The smugglers show up, one of them draws a gun, and is killed in the ensuing firefight. The smugglers' leader draws his own weapon, jumps out of the railway car and tries to make it to his own automobile, blazing away at Mac in the process. The smuggler fires eleven shots from a six-gun (and doesn't appear to be out of ammo) before Mac pins him against the car with a railway wagon. See more »
