An episode like this suggests the series is wearing thin. Probably the best part is the Gunn-Jacoby byplay, which the series came to rely on more and more. All in all, the plot is about as sketchy and contrived as something written on the back of an envelope. Pete's hired to look for a missing man somewhere in Latin America, while Jacobi wants a vacation. So the cop goes along. Together they find a mining operation that's doubling as a platform for political revolution!
Some of those Latin American scenes would never fly now in our sensitized cultural milieu the lazy peasant with his burro, etc. Then too, the shootouts are clumsily staged and contrived. On the other hand the flying bullets do leave marks, while dirty shirts carry over realistically from one scene to the next. Nonetheless, it's a weak entry, even if a testament to Stevens and Bernardi's professionalism under off-putting circumstances.
