Storyline

"Man in Harmony," a 3-ton, 11-foot tall sculpture, is missing at its gala unveiling. The 5-foot pedestal to which it was attached is all that remains to mark the theft. A ransom demand, threatening to turn the large stone into gravel unless $500,000 is paid, further complicates the case. Working in competition with a Boston Insurance Company colleague, Banacek has only two days to find the statue and collect his fee. Written by bobbymaxwell

Quotes

Thomas Banacek: You know, you always remind me of a little boy who *didn't* cry "wolf."
Henry DeWitt: I like the "boy" part.
Thomas Banacek: I mean it. The more you say you don't have anything, the more I believe you almost got it cracked. It's a great con.

To save on the Finder's fee
26 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

When the statue that Gary Lockwood sculpted for Philistine millionaire Scott Brady is stolen from a museum as it is about to be displayed it's one of those Banacek like problems. But insurance company head Linden Chiles would like to solve the mystery at a cut rate so he assigns Christine Belford from his company to save on Banacek's finders fee. I learned along time ago if you can pay for the best, get the best. But then there would have been no episode.

George Peppard's mystery here is how does one get a huge 11 foot 3 ton statue out of a building without being spotted? Not only is the statue stolen, but a ransom is demanded out of Scott Brady. Peppard tags along with Belford for the ride. But of course she gets it all wrong and he's right on the money.

I have to say this was one clever robbery and done for the sake of art in a strange way. You'll have to watch the episode to see what I mean.
