More like a Rockford Files story
16 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Beah Richards best known for playing Sidney Poitier's mother in Guess Who's Coming To Dinner plays Don Mitchell's aunt in this Ironside episode. She gets taken by a couple of conmen, Joseph Campanella and Philip Pine out of her life savings. Big mistake to bring down the personal attention of Ironside's team.

What they discover early on was that this and other similar occurrences was to get seed money for a different kind of bunco involving rich people at a plush resort. Don Galloway and Barbara Anderson go undercover as just such a pair of rich yuppies. Of course they get the goods on Campenella and Pine, but it isn't easy because Campanella is no fool.

This Ironside episode looks more like it belonged in The Rockford Files. Still it's a more serious look than The Rockford Files would have made it.
