Glenn Howard learns 'when in Rome' can be dangerous !
10 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Spoiler Alert !

A 'Gene Barry' Segment Episode

Millionaire Publisher Glenn Howard (Gene Barry) flies out to Rome together with his Research Assistant Peggy Maxwell (Susan Saint James) to investigate the death of a known to him 'Playgirl' friend of a notorious American gangster...

In the course of his enquiries Glenn Howard discovers that a beautiful Contessa and an old friend of his are both deeply involved in the crime....

A Strong supporting guest cast includes Dana Wynter as 'Francesca', Ed Begley as 'Gene Sobel', Cesare Danova as 'Alfieri' and special guest star Louis Jourdan as 'Mario Leopardi'.

Semi Regular supporting cast of both Cliff Potts (credited as 'Potter') as Howard's assistant 'Andrew Hill' and Susan Saint James 'Peggy Maxwell' (again crossing over into her overall boss story) provide solid back up for Gene Barry's impeccable Lead character in this involved tale.
