Spoiler Alert !

A 'Tony Franciosa' Segment Episode

When Pete Fowler discovers that wealthy and powerfully influential farmer Jesse Gil McRae (Darren McGavin), a seemingly charming and charismatic character of high public profile and good repute... is secretly involved in a major financial conspiracy, he is then shot to death....

....however his death is mysteriously then just recorded by the local Police as a 'suicide'...

Howard Publications 'People' Magazine Star Investigative Reporter Jeff Dillon (Tony Franciosa) is convinced Fowler would never have taken his own life...and begins checking into the death, aided by his faithful Research Assistant Peggy Maxwell (Susan Saint James)....

Jeff Dillon comes to realise just how powerful Jesse Gil McRae really is, with the law apparently in his pocket...

Good supporting cast includes Gary Collins as Sheriff Beal, and the famous Gypsy Rose Lee as Rosetta.

Series Note: Gene Barry makes a few brief cameo appearances 'as Glenn Howard' in this 'Tony Franciosa' Segment Episode.
