Glenn Howard plays Reluctant International Peacemaker...
4 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Spoiler Alert !

A 'Gene Barry' Segment Episode.

When Red Chinese diplomats suddenly walk out on an International Conference being held in Paris, diplomats prevail upon the visiting influential Millionaire Publisher Glenn Howard (Gene Barry) to use his influence to try to persuade them to return to the conference....

But is there more going on here than Howard is initially made aware of by his own side....?

A strong International Guest Cast including French film star Charles Boyer (as Henri Jarnoux) plus American Craig Stevens as Lang Roberts and Ivan Tchenko as Mikhail Knutskov give this partly filmed on location in Paris episode a authentic feel, as the show makes one of it's occasional and always well depicted forays away from it's home setting of the USA and notably California.

Series Notes: Susan Saint James appears as (this time) her character's overall boss Glenn Howard's Research Assistant 'Peggy Maxwell' in one of her occasional excursions over into the 'Gene Barry' segments of the series.

While Gene Barry has an uncharacteristic 'close cropped' hairstyle for this one episode !
