So What's with the Briefcase
22 April 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Another good hook for a series that specialized in them. A mechanic with a wrench slides under a car only to be confronted by a ferocious looking thug (Horvath) staring down at him. We know this won't end well. Anyway, Pete's hired by a shapely blonde (Avery) to deliver a briefcase to a warehouse entrance. We know it must have something to do with the murderous thug, but what. Then when the briefcase turns out to be empty, we wonder what's up. Pete better figure it out before the thug gets him too. Good dramatic color, as usual. There's gender-bending Mother (Urecal) along with a diminutive Billy Barty who can apparently sink an 8-ball blindfolded. If straightlaced Sgt. Friday of 1950's Dragnet defined the Eisenhower era, the sleekly handsome Gunn (Stevens) defines the more glamorous Kennedy era. Credit producer Blake Edwards for sensing the changing times, with entries like this.
