Suspenseful Snooping On A Boat
15 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pete does his snooping and punching on a boat at a nearby dock in this suspense episode.

A lady bursts into Mothers after hours, has a drink of water, and then collapses and dies. She had asked for Peter Gunn but that's all "Mother" (Hope Emerson) and "Edie" (Lola Albright) now as the victim died suddenly. She had been poisoned.

Gunn checks out the woman's car outside the nightclub and notices a captain's hat so he goes down to the local marina to check out what anybody knows of "Mrs. Lederer," the dead woman.

He quickly finds trouble, as only Pete can, as the captain on Mrs. Lederer's boat isn't too happy he's snooping around.

Anyway, Gunn returns at night and has to sneak around without being seen and that just ain't gonna happen with family and thugs aboard. The camera-work is solid film-noir stuff and the story moves quickly. The only thing I didn't like was Lola Albright's new short hairstyle.
