Storyline

Governor Bradford of California dispatches a letter to President Grant. He requests assistance, and Grant obliges by dispatching his two top agents, West and Gordon. It seems there is a conspiracy to take over the state government and the governor needs protection to stay alive long enough to discover and punish the perpetrators. But as time goes by and attempts are made against the agents' lives and not the governor's, Jim begins to smell a rat. There's something about the painting that hangs on the wall behind the governor's desk, and when Jim realizes what it is, he instantly knows his problems are much worse than he thought.

Bolt from the blue

Jim and Arte receive a worried letter from 'Governor Bradford' ( Henry Beckman ). When they show up at his office, they do not know he has been abducted and replaced by a double called 'Sam Jameson'. The governor's secretary - 'Miss Piecemeal' ( Sigrid Valdis ) is in on the plan. Its real leader though is 'Professor Horatio Bolt' ( Alfred Ryder ), owner of the Bolt Museum of Fine Arts. The fake governor tells the secret service men that someone wants him dead. He is due to attend the unveiling of a new statue, but refuses to cancel the engagement. Bolt intends buying the Mona Lisa with the money he makes from the operation. Jim notices that the governor is suddenly right-handed. The real one is not...

Co-written by Philip Saltzman - later the Executive Producer of Conrad's 'A Man Called Sloane' - this episode works very well. Viviane Ventura is seen as 'Angelique' - this stunning beauty also graced a number of British films such as 'Finders Keepers' and 'Battle Beneath The Earth' ( both 1966 ). The climax in the museum has Bolt aiming a large crossbow at West. Beckman is very good as both 'the Governor' and 'Jameson'. Arte's impersonation of an art expert is among one of the most amusing in the whole series.
