The young Carol Dane goes to Shayne asking him to investigate her mother's boyfriend, Edward Stanchey. Stanchey is not only much younger than her wealthy mother, Dolores, but he is also a shady character. Stanchey (who was in fact after Dolores' money) is found murdered and there are plenty of suspects, but Gentry is convinced that Dolores' devoted elderly maid killed Stanchey and arrests her. In the most interesting scene in the show, Shayne goes to the jail to interview Vera (played by one of those "the face is familiar" character actresses, Celia Lovsky). He notices the tattoo of a number on her wrist and she says "I was in Buchenwald," to which he replies "I saw Auschwitz." Vera then confesses to the murder, but Shayne decides to keep looking into it. This is a very sad episode, but there is a bit of comic relief provided by the great character actor Dub Taylor as one of Shayne's informers. The best known guest performer is probably Susan Oliver as Carol Dane; Oliver had a solid television career. Lynn Bari was in many B pictures, but the one I most remember her in is a Lloyd Nolan "Michael Shayne" movie from the early forties. So her appearance in the Michael Shayne t.v. show 20 years later is kinda neat.
