Storyline

The Caldwell family is part of a Communist Cell in the San Francisco Bay area. The cell plans to blow up a U.S. ship sailing from Oakland to take war supplies to Vietnam. Erskine and Rhodes lead the FBI's investigation, which begins when Lester Milton is found murdered. Milton is a former Communist who renounced the party. John Caldwell, patriarch of the Caldwell family, is really Milton's brother. Milton was spotted by Communist operative Conrad Letterman, who is the mastermind behind the scheme to blow up the ship. The FBI races to apprehend Letterman, not knowing the full extent of the plot. Betty Caldwell, the 20-year-old daughter of John Caldwell, faces a crisis. She's in love with a Navy doctor who has been assigned to the ship at the last minute. Written by Bill Koenig

Hilarious Goof

Something that is quite funny at the beginning of this episode:

Bad guy Michael Rennie visits two of his operatives who are now married and not wanting to jeopardize their American lifestyle. He is welcomed by the wife who takes Michael's coat and puts it on a coat rack. They slowly move into the next room, continuing to talk and not noticing something still in view of the camera: In the background, the coat falls off the coat rack to the floor with no reaction from anybody.

The husband is played by Arthur Franz, who just passed away a few days ago. I had thought he died in 1983, but now I learn that was Eduard Franz whose obit I heard on "Entertainment Tonight" at that time. The wife is played by Julie Sommars.
