"Miami Undercover"– School for Girls – 1961

"Miami Undercover" was a Private Investigator series set in Miami Florida. Lee Bowman headlines as a P.I. who works for the Miami Hotel owner's association. His right hand is Rocky Graziano (The middle-weight boxing champ 1948-49) Also in the cast is Hugh Lawrence as Bowman's Police contact. The series ran for 38 episodes during 1961. This particular episode is the 36th of the production run.

There have been a number of break-ins at an exclusive girl's school. Jewels and other expensive items have been lifted from various dorm rooms. The school asks Private Investigator Lee Bowman, to look into the matter. They would rather not call in the local Police as the newspapers may get wind of the events.

Bowman and his pal, Rocky Graziano agree to see what they can do about the trouble. Of course there are several likely suspects among the school's staff. There is even a purse snatcher grabbed up in the investigation. None of these turns out to be the person they want. Some of the stolen items even turn up at a local pawn shop. This lead also goes nowhere.

Bowman and Graziano decide to stake-out one of the wealthier girls, Carla Hoffman's dorm room. They soon get lucky when a man breaks in and rifles the drawers looking for jewels etc. On go the lights and the man is grabbed up. It turns out it is one of the instructors at the school, Noel Drayton. The man is turned over to the Police and the case closed.

Not exactly a sterling bit of television is this one. It suffers from a rather weak story and sloppy direction.
