Pretty good episode. Good thing Laura's a friend of Mary's. That way she gets help from Blackie when Laura's husband is killed by a bank-robber's buddy and she recognizes him. Now the thug is out to silence Laura. A key draw of the series is its preference for filming on location. That way we get to see residential neighborhoods and streets with their vintage cars from 60+ years ago. Here we get a lot of good views. Some good action at the end that I imagine called for doubles stepping in, especially with the leaping stunts. Also, some cute scenes with Whitey as he keeps getting in trouble. Anyway, Mary gets to show some chops along with Irene Vernon as the besieged Laura. All in all, a solid episode.
