A popular young boxer on his way up, Tony Triano, is shotgunned to death on a dark city street by professional hit men. His family is devastated - who would want the generous Tony dead ? Especially hard-hit is Tony's mediocre stablemate Gino, who Tony helped get fights. Tony's family hires Peter Gunn to find who killed Tony. When the drunken Gino comes to Mother's nightclub to meet with Gunn, he's waylaid and beaten by the hit men. Written by David Stevens

Good scenes
10 May 2010 | by (Iowa) – See all my reviews

I enjoy watching 52 year old Peter Gunn shows more than anything new that is on TV now. This episode is a reason why. I don't normally like boxing stories but this one had me hooked from the beginning. Though Gino's drunk act was a little too much, there are two scenes to watch more than once in this episode. Early on Pete goes into Edie's dressing room. We see her buttoning her dress and Pete is framed between her arm and side. There ensues a nice little bit of dialogue between the two until interrupted by Mother with a situation for Pete. The second scene is towards the end Gino has to fight two thugs in the ring, well directed and real looking fight. Worth watching for these two moments.
