A 'Robert Stack' Segment Episode
Howard Publications 'CRIME' Magazine Editor Dan Farrell (Robert Stack) becomes involved in the crusading activities of Father Bernard Torres (Ricardo Montalban) who is out to expose the corrupt landlord Milton Spencer (Edward Andrews) who is forcing local poor and immigrant workers to live in ghastly unsafe tenement housing conditions....

Dan Farrell observes as Father Torres accepts a large bottle from the local children...then on them visiting Landlord Milton Spencer's lavish office to complain with the concerned Priest receiving a stern rebuttal, Father Torres opens the bottle...and lets out a flood of cockroaches on Spencer's Executive desk in order to let him have a taste of the dreadful living conditions his poor tenants are being forced to endure....
Father Torres ceaseless crusading and his continued drawing of public attention to the housing issue later duly leads to his contracted murder, arranged by Spencer and Dan Farrell then digs deep to expose the guilty party.....

The crusading Father Torres face is depicted on the cover of the latest issue of 'CRIME' Magazine at the end of this episode.
