Close Run Thing
11 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Two strangers Richard Jaeckel and Jackie Cooper become linked when Jaeckel surprises Cooper at gunpoint and slips a belt on him with an bomb attached and able to be detonated by remote control.

Fortunately the Ironside team is around when Jaeckel directs Cooper to see Commissioner Gene Lyons. Jaeckel says he's representing some cockamamie People's Revolutionary Army and he wants to prisoners from Soledad and one from Chino released and a private plane to be transportation.

As it turns out plain greed is the real motive not anything as grandiose as Jaeckel claims it. And his big mistake is to up his demands and ask for Raymond Burr as a hostage. Though I will say the outcome was a close run thing.

Check this one out.
