Fingerprints

That's the first time I see Earl Holliman in a POLICE STORY episode in which he plays a detective and not a cop in uniform. He seems here very concerned with fingerprints, maybe more than in pure facts or testimonies of witnesses. That's here this episode is so particular. The other odd thing is that this detective lives with his mom, played by Martha Scott, whom I hardly recognized. You have here more an investigation than hard boiled action scenes and car chases. Only one short street scene where our lead detective gets awry aboard his own car. Or near the end, when he runs after the suspect. OK, that changes from the usual routine. But it remains police routine after all, only with more talk than you have to deal with in other episodes of this show dedicated to police force. Holliman is pretty good here in this however forgettable story. Not the best of the whole series for sure. Amusing ending when he forces a car driver to bring him to the police station with the arrested man.
