Did the client look familiar

Actors appearing in TV series in many roles over the years is one thing. But in this 77 Sunset Strip episode we have Richard Long once a series regular whenWarner Brothers cannibalized his old series Bourbon Street Beat and brought him in as an associate of Bailey&Spencer for a couple of seasons. Yet not once in this story does Stu Bailey tell him that he looks an awful lot like Rex Randolph.

It's an unusual assignment Efrem Zimbalist pulls here. It's a babysitting gig as Richard Long is a kind of good looking drunk Al Bundy whose greatest days were on the school football team. The former big man on campus marries Gail Kobe the daughter of business tycoon Robert F. Simon who puts him to work in his company and never lets him forget he's there because he married the boss's daughter.

Simple enough to keep him sober during a big business conference. But Long slips away and he's found in a Tiajuana dive with a dead girl. Then it's a murder mystery, a little more like what Zimbalist is used to.

This one was truly obvious in its solution yet the solid cast delivers some good performances.
