A hearing-impaired man (Vic Perrin, Control Voice, "The Outer Limits") stabs a Chinese shop owner to death with a dagger, while Triad muscle go after a gorgeous dancer's fan, given to her for good luck. The dancer's fiancé (James Hong, the arrogant host of "The Chinese Restaurant," Seinfeld) hires Peter Gunn ("the king of finders-out") to change her luck. Is there a connection between the fan and the murderer, who adores The Green Dragon's star dancer ? Written by
So what's with the fan people are literally dying over. It's fancy but otherwise pretty ordinary . Plus, nothing can be hidden in it. Still, it's the crux of this exotic episode that takes Pete to Chinatown and an elderly patriarch straight out of Shangri-La (Hale, in a ton of make-up). On other hand, looks like our sleek hero really earns his money in a fistfight that wrecks about every gizmo in the prop room. I hope they used a double when he takes that bad tumble down the stairs, otherwise this could have been the final episode. Anyway, it's a nifty 30-minutes with colorful characters and the usual series flair. Good also to see Dragnet stalwart Vic Perrin picking up a payday, though I could have used more of the winsome "sing-song dance girl" (Fong). Solid if different kind of entry.
