Good opening and in daylight too. An armored car is robbed and the stash taken. So why is Pete hired to accompany a coffin to Mexico, where most of the action takes place.
Pretty fair episode, not as stylish or with as much noir, as usual. Nonetheless, the acting is first-rate. For example, Miriam Colon is excellent as the tearful Maria. And, guys, catch that first passion sequence with Edie. The camera doesn't flinch as it looks down her bra-less top. How's that for lifting the lid on the uptight 1950's. Then too, catch that flamenco dance that's about as spirited as any I've seen. That's along with a cool jazz number by Pete's favorite torch singer and squeeze. And note that when Ramon (Caruso) turns his head, a big scar suddenly pops up. It's colorful bits of stagecraft like this that helped lift the series. Nothing special in this 30-minutes, just another entertaining entry in a ground-breaking series.
