Murder at the art gallery
26 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** Locked up in the exclusive Gillian Sanitarium for the last 20 years man known only by his registration number #262, Myron McCormick, while checking out the morning papers sees that there's paintings to be auction off, the works of the late Albert Blakely, at the Darrington Gallery in New York City that afternoon. Right away a bulb lights up in Mr. #262's head as he plans to crash out of the sanitarium and make his way to NYC to attend the art auction and check out the paintings. Seeing the works of Blakely are fakes #262 goes bananas and wrecks one on display until the police are called in to arrest him. As it soon turns out Mr. #262 is really the late Albert Blakely who's come back from the dead or the Gillian Sanitarium to exact revenger against those that put him there one of them being his cousin Carl Blakely, Alfred Ryder!

Sent by the police to Bellevue Hospital for observation #262 now identified as the late Albert Blakely escapes and makes his way to his daughter Elizabeth's, Rosalyn Newport, pad who, despite being worth millions, lives in a run down walk up east side tenement without heat or running hot water. With "Liz" confirming who he is Barkley now mad as hell tries to make it back to the art gallery and finish the job, in destroying all the fake works attributed to him, that he in fact started,

***SPOILERS" It's Darrington, Conrad Nagel, who's art gallery the fake paintings are displayed at who attempts to destroy them before their proved to be fakes and thus ruin his reputation. As an almost insane Darrington starts to wreck the place Carl, he hasn't the guts to do it himself, has his henchman and art forger Sorin, Jim Boles, do the job for him by smashing the out of control Darrington's skull in with an icepick. The end of this wired "Naked City" episode couldn't have come soon enough with a now totally deranged Blakely, who's been framed by his cousin Carl in Darrington's murder, breaking into the art gallery and attacking Carl with what looked like a paintbrush who has, Carl doesn't want to get his hands dirty or bloody, his stooge or henchman Sorin then try to murder him, this time with a knife that the gutless Carl handed him, as well. It's then that the cops headed by Det. Adam Flint, Paul Burke, bust in and finally put an end to this madness!
