Bert Gordon


Bert Gordon has created a criminal organization that will get ride of anyone, anywhere -- no bodies are ever found. Gordon is untouchable through conventional means of investigation and prosecution. Phelps devises a plan that takes advantage of Gordon's superstitions. Phelps and Cinammon pose as a bickering couple, where the wife is eager to employ Gordon's services. The IMF will also make it appear that the dead are trying to reach people in the world of the living. The goal is to manipulate Gordon into a fix where even he cannot escape from the law.

Person on Tape: Good morning, Mr. Phelps. We recently learned that, in order to carry out the underworld's policy of enforcement, this man, Bert Gordon, has set up an organization similar to the old 'Murder, Inc.' Gordon will arrange for the disposal of anyone, anywhere, for a price. The victims always disappear with no evidence of foul play and the body is never recovered.

a bit weak...
31 August 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Like too many episodes of "Mission: Impossible" (particularly the later ones), this one is illogical. The government KNOWS that Bert Gordon is a guy in charge of a murder for hire scheme and they want Phelps and his team to prove it. Like so many mobster episodes, you just wonder why they don't just assassinate the guy--it would have been much easier than creating and elaborate ruse to trap the guy. As for the ruse, it's mildly interesting as a wife (Cinnamon) wants Gordon to kill her drunk of a husband (Phelps). The problem is that the husband won't stay dead and his ghost haunts Gordon. Ho-hum.... Again, I would have shot shot Gordon in the face and have been done with it.
