***SPOILERS*** A bit confusing "Streets of San Francisco" episode with Det. Let. Mike Stone, Karl Malden, framed in the murder of undercover cop Gino Carlimo played by son of Tarzan Johnny Weissmuller Jr. with a very obvious and cheap clip-on beard to disguise himself. Told to meet him on the docks by hit-man Mickey Sims, William Smith, in regard to a 12 year old unsolved murder that he was at the time investigating Stone gets clobbered in the head with his gun used to knock-off the unconscious Carlino and make it look like Stone did it. As ridicules as it looked the SFPD took the murder of Gino Carlino by Det. Let. Stone seriously and had him put on desk duty until the facts, of Carlino's murder, proved otherwise.
It turned out that mobster Al Lyman, Don Michaelian, set the whole thing up to get the nose sniffing hound-dog like Det. Let. Stone off his back who's been making things hot for him and his shake-down or protection racket. It's now up to Let. Det. Stone's partner Insp. Steve Keller, Michael Douglas, to get to the truth of Carlino's murder but he's hampered by the gong-ho and by the book Inspt.Glenn Decker, Groffery Devel, who's been put on the confusing murder case.
***SPOILERS*** Inspt. Keller starts to uncover police corruption in the police department that together with mobster Lyman had Det. Let. Stone framed for Carlino's murder. It was the incompetence of hit-man Sims and his bumbling partner and wheel-man Denny Miller that broke the case wide open. That instead of going underground and waiting for the heat to cool off Sims tried to knock off Insp. Keller when he was getting too close to the truth in Lyman's involvement in Carlino's murder. And not only that in him about to find the mole in the police department who's been working with Lyman in setting Det. Let. Stone up while at the same time working on the murder case that he's being framed for.
