Quotes

Mrs. Ryan: What kind of gun do you carry?
Jeff Spencer: Well not on a case like this. Short barrel 38 when I have to.
Mrs. Ryan: Oh well. I'll have to take you out in my backyard anytime. Beer cans at fifty feet, young fellow. Next time you come around you bring your weapon. Loser pays for the beer.

Or the Spider's Web
24 November 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Yes folks, everything here seems to make the audiences expect a femme fatale, a deadly woman for any male who may approach her. A pretty good episode indeed, supported by the exceptional noir atmosphere which is the trade mark of the series. Actually our leads, including Cookie, investigate for the purpose of an insurance executive who suspects a swindle after an accident that occurred in a big factory. and the male diseased had a wife for whom the money should be given to. See what I drive at?

Well, this story remains very predictable. The routine stuff.

One more time, directed by George Waggner
