Quotes

Richard Diamond: Now most girls are a little touchy about answering questions asked by strangers. So I figured the best way to get Miss Thomas to open up was to fill the air with the sound of wedding bells and the sweet smell of orange blossoms.

Quite good.

"Merry-Go-Round Case" is one of only five episodes of "Richard Diamond, Private Detective" that are currently available. Some are bouncing around on various DVDs and a few are available for free download at archive.org--but out of four seasons, I've only been able to find the five.

The show begins with a couple hoodlums holding up a gas station. The owner is shot and so is one of the crooks. The other, Jack Milhoan (James Best), escapes. Next you learn that Milhoan was an old war buddy of Richard Diamond--and Milhoan's sister is worried about him. She's seen him slip further and further into a life of crime and is hoping that Diamond can locate him before her brother gets himself killed.

This is a HIGHLY unusual episode--one that makes me wish there were more available to see. It's because the show does NOT go where I expected--surprising me several times--particularly the ending. I love to be surprised and think you'll probably like this one too.
