Quotes

Kookie: This Westerfield chick sounds interesting.
Stuart Bailey: Come to think of it you two have a lot in common. She's unattached, full of beans, loaded with loot. She's wild about jazz and hot rods.
Kookie: Well when do I get to meet her?
Stuart Bailey: There's just one thing. The chick is eighty-two years old.

The women in his life

It's a midnight call at Dino's from the family physician that gets Efrem Zimbalist involved in a kidnapping that the family wants to handle quietly. Walter Reed an old friend of Stu Bailey's is kidnapped and the family is asked to fork over a sizable ransom.

Reed married singer Gale Robbins and the obvious conclusion is that she who was running around with gangster Fred Gerstle is in this somewhere. A line taken by Reed's sister Yvonne Craig and secretary Suzanne Storrs. But you already know that will not be the case.

I had a lot of problems with Yvonne Craig cast as Reed's sister, that was way too big an obvious age spread. Similarly Gerstle as a gangster who might just have a heart of gold. This was not a Damon Runyon story.

Still the conclusion is a pip.
