The exterior scenes outside of what is supposed to be the Hagar's European mansion were filmed at 380 South San Rafael Ave, Pasadena, California - the same house used as the exterior of Wayne Manor in the "Batman" series that was also on the air at this time. See more »


Barney and Rollin could not have picked up $2 million worth of platinum. Platinum, in 1967 was approximately $160 per troy oz. $2 million worth of platinum would weigh 857 pounds. However, the volume would be only about .64 cubic feet as a cubic foot of platinum is 1340 pounds. This would be a cube about 7.4 inches per side. See more »

The premise is weak from the outset
22 April 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

"Charity" is a weak episode because if you think about it, it makes little sense for the IM Force to be dealing with such a mundane group of criminals. After all, why not just shoot them?! Duh!

Mr. and Mrs. Hager (Fritz Weaver and Hazel Court) pose as wonderful benefactors and fund-raisers for charity. However, they have no intention of giving anything away and are using this as a scam to make themselves rich. In fact, the booty for all their scams is the form of platinum bars that are hidden in their home. The assignment is to discredit these thieves and get the platinum.

The plan is to convince both Mr. AND Mrs. Hager that the other is trying to have them killed. Then after dividing them, the hope is that they will end up chasing each other to the border--and what happens there you'll need to see for yourself.
