James Coburn in a Solid Episode
23 July 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Solid episode. Helen Bailey thinks her jazz trombonist husband Bud is trying to kill her, so Pete goes to talk to him. But Bud is really distraught with his life; plus Helen isn't with her brother as she was supposed to be. Later, a body turns up. So what's going on.

It's an early James Coburn. As Bud, he's is more expressive than I've ever seen him. After all, his stardom was built on being cool and contained. Also good is Cece Whitney as the nervous wife. Then too, the banter between Pete and Lt. Jacoby is particularly clever. Look for some cutting-edge camera angles for TV of the time. That plus the hip jazz background creates the typical series mood. All in all, a highly entertaining 30-minutes with an early look at a 60's icon.
