Storyline

Working alone late at night, a marine salvage company owner grabs a revolver to follow gigantic footprints out of his office to a dock, where a frogman croaks him with a spear-gun. His co-owner, a huge, hulking frogman, claims he's too upset to talk to anybody - except his lawyer. A meek insurance adjuster hires Peter Gunn to solve a series of mysterious riverside robberies, so Gunn enlists a competing salvage diver, whose lily pad is a swinging tiki lair, complete with seductive hula dancers.

PETER GUNN – Scuba – 1959

This is episode 21 of the 1958 to 1961 P.I. series, PETER GUNN. Craig Stevens headlines as the hard as nails detective who always dresses with style. Regulars in the series are Hope Emerson as the owner of, MOTHER'S jazz club, and Lola Albright as Stevens' squeeze, Edie Hart, who is the club singer at, MOTHER'S.

There has been a string of break-ins and robberies along warehouse row on the riverfront. During the last robbery, a man, Robert DeCost was shot and killed with a spear gun. The insurance company hires Stevens to get to the bottom of the matter.

Stevens checks all along the riverfront looking for clues. He finally gets a few leads at a scuba shop ran by Gertrude Flynn. She puts him onto a local who is also the diver the Police call in when needed. The man, Charles Cooper, seems to be doing quite well for a fellow who seldom works. He is busy with drinks and a couple of stunners, Georgine Darcy and Eva Lynd in his arms.

Stevens has Cooper take him on an underwater tour of the warehouse area. He also wants to check up on the dead man's partner, Bern Hoffman. This idea nearly comes to a fatal end for Stevens. It turns out that Cooper is the real thief and murderer. It is only the help of former suspect Hoffman that Stevens survives.

Cooper is handed over to Police Lt Herschel Bernardi, while Stevens takes Hoffman out to tip a few drinks at Mother's Club. (b/w)
