Doesn't Really Gel
23 April 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Average entry, at best. Catch the hand held subjective camera as the killer mounts the stairs. This was a time when such innovative photography was still rare for cautious commercial TV. Again, producer Blake helps pioneer TV with a different look. Anyhow Pete's hired by DA Lockwood (a good turn by Frank Overton) to investigate a murder that's likely to implicate his son (Prine). In the process, Pete gets roughed up by gangster DeSantis (Charles) who looks like the guilty party. Color is supplied by a fey fashion designer (Adams) who treats his models like cattle. The elements of a good Gunn episode are present, but in my view they never really gel into a suspenseful whole. Instead they just unfold in interesting fashion.

A "5" on the Series Scale

(In passing— Ironically, actor Prine was involved in a real life murder case at about this time. In 1963, budding actress Karyn Kupcinet was found dead in her Hollywood apartment, an apparent murder victim. Prine was a boyfriend and a suspect for a period. Whether or not he was ever fully cleared, I don't know, but the murder itself was never solved.)
