Freelance newsman 'Sam Hardy' investigates...
15 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Darren McGavin takes a guest starring 'one off' lead role in this episode as top freelance newsman Sam Hardy who gives publisher Glenn Howard first refusal on any stories he unearths.

When leading rocket scientist Dr. Harry Rourke (James Whitmore) goes missing Hardy investigates, while agents of both home and foreign countries try to locate Rourke, the relentless Hardy assisted by Peggy Maxwell must outsmart all sides and resist pressure to find Rourke first.

Darren McGavin shines as the maverick freelance newsman Sam Hardy while Gene Barry cameos 'as Glenn Howard' with the episode put under his segment, possibly this guest lead episode was a potential series pilot idea.
