Ralph Stackpole lives a life of luxury, enjoying the finer things in life, despite his disinterested wife. His lifestyle paid for by his factory, which produces gloves, but he has a thief at work, someone in his employ is stealing a small amount of gloves, never more then half a dozen, but enough to make Stackpole want to catch the miscreant, he brings in a Private Detective 'Mr Semple.' Prime suspect is designer and young talent Cotter, who's enjoying the freedom of the company. Stackpole and Semple set a trap,

The first thing you notice is the poor camera work, it looks like it was filmed on a hand held camera. It looks and feels at odds with the recent batch of top notch episodes, not just because it was made Stateside, in fact Tom Bosley and the legendary Janet Leigh are great, it just feels a bit uninteresting, a little bit on the slow side. The cast make it enjoyable enough, and the twist at the end is a fun one.

Not bad, 6/10
