This is the 29th episode of the 39 episode run of the 1954 to 1956 series, ADVENTURES OF THE FALCON. Film noir icon Charles McGraw headlines as Mike Waring, an agent of the U.S. Government. The series follows McGraw as he travels the world putting the kibosh on various criminals and foreign agents. The series is loosely based on the FALCON series of films of the 1940's.
The U.S. Government sends agent Mike Waring (Charles McGraw) to help out with a problem. Big-time rackets boss, Robert Armstrong is about to be deported back to the old country. Armstrong is just finishing a long bit in Federal prison. Once that is done, it is on the boat and out of the country. Armstrong is not at all happy with this idea. He has more than a few enemies back home.
His girl, Linda Stirling, arranges to have several guns smuggled into Armstrong. He and several pals can then pull a break. He has enough cash stashed away to lay low for years.
Armstrong and his men, Denver Pyle and I. Stanford Jolley, make their move just as our man McGraw is at the prison. Armstrong tells the warden and such that it will be a bullet through McGraw's brain pan if the prison gates are not opened.
Needless to say our man McGraw manages to throw a large monkey wrench into Armstrong's plans. Jolley and Pyle are the first to get re-captured while Armstrong makes it to the prison yard. A few blasts from a guard's Thompson machine gun, soon persuades Armstrong to surrender. After Armstrong is deposited on the boat out of the country, the Feds swoop in and corral Miss Stirling for a long holiday on the Feds dime.
