Chief Ironside, one cool customer
30 December 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The original Ironside liked to put the Chief in hostage situations every now and then. In this story Raymond Burr is at the bank discussing a proposed investment plan that branch manager Whit Bissell is trying to talk him into.

Right at the closing hour three men, Don Stroud, Rafael Campos, and Frank Marth who are customers pull guns and hold those still in the bank as hostages. Stroud's the leader, Campos is go along to get along kind of guy and wants big bucks to win his errant wife back. And Marth is already a two time loser and one more felony sends him up the river for life.

I've said it before, but Chief Ironside is one cool customer under fire. Watch how he gets word to the SFPD that there's a holdup in progress.

A really good story.
