A Loose Affiliation of Millionaires and Billionaires...?
7 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Spoiler Alert !

A 'Tony Franciosa' Segment Episode

After Bill Fletcher dies a rich one is sure as to just how he made his money...?

Howard Publications 'People' Magazine Star Investigative Reporter Jeff Dillon (Tony Franciosa) becomes intrigued by Fletcher's life and sets out to retrace his life story and rise to vast wealth, and in doing so encounters some prompting from U.S.Government officials who are keenly watching his every move....

Jeff Dillon's dogged determined uncovering of the truth duly exhumes a fascinating historical footnote regarding a loose affiliation of powerful wealthy people who unwisely backed the WRONG side in World War Two...following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Lee Meriwether guests as 'Bridget' with Yvonne De Carlo (of 'The Munsters' fame) as 'Mrs.Levene'.

Susan Saint James appears in her award winning supporting role as Dillon's faithful 'Girl Friday' Research assistant 'Peggy Maxwell'

This intriguing episode poses an interesting angle regarding those in 'priviliged' positions of power and influence who choose to back countries in some people grow rich through wars, while others lose everything...
