Gary Conway Scores in Five Minutes
3 February 2020 | by professor-moriarty1See all my reviews

I remember this episode where Detetive Tim Tilson played by Gary Conway poses as a beach bum to help Burke solve the crime. He meets Sharon Farrell who plays a beach tramp named Libby Hale. She see's the muscular Tim in his swim trunks walking in from the ocean with his surf board. She approaches him and hits on him. Tim is balling her five minutes after they meet. Pretty racy for 1964.
