Mildred Natwick returns as Rock Hudson's mother in this episode of McMillan&Wife as she saunters into their home in her usual fashion to the consternation of Nancy Walker whom she makes extra work for.
An old friend of her's is in trouble. William Demarest several decades before had incorporated an alfalfa corporation with an idea for growing the stuff to use in breakfast cereal. The company had laid dormant for years but now some undue pressure is being put upon by him and other stockholders to buy up their shares and whatever company assets they might possess.
Natwick takes the side of the oppressed as one of the stockholders is Jack Gilford who owns a used car lot on company land and is being pressured to get out. The problem is that Natwick takes up the wrong cause.
In the meantime a couple of attempts are made on Demarest and one successful murder is done on Bert Freed, head of the company that's putting all the pressure on.
Now Hudson has to look for a real murderer. He's aided and abetted by Natwick and Susan Saint James sort of. Natwick's confrontation with the villain is really something else.
Nicely done, especially by Pat Harrington as a hard driving business executive working for Freed.
