Storyline

A dying man stumbles into a church and tells a young nun that he was responsible for sending an innocent man to prison. Her parish priest asks Joe Mannix, an old friend, to find out who the dead man was referring to. Mannix discovers that the dead man was a witness in a murder trial several years before -- but the man in prison, and his former attorney, steadfastly insist he was guilty. Mannix reluctantly begins to accept this, too -- until several attempts are made to convince him to stop investigating the case. Written by aldanoli

Trivia

C.W Taggart is seen onscreen only as a shadow, although pictures of him are shown earlier. This may be because the person on the rocking horse is not Ted Brocco but rather a stuntwoman about his size, although Brocco provides C. W. Taggart's voice. The story structure clearly indicates that Mannix is supposed to be seeing Taggart himself at the end of the show. See more »

Goofs

When Mr. Mannix breaks down a door, the wall moves visibly - rather like a temporary set wall instead of a solidly built wall holding a heavy door. See more »

Someone has already plead guilty for murder...so how can Mannix STILL have a case?
27 January 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This episode begins with a drunk having an accident. He crawls into a nearby Catholic church looking for a priest to hear his dying confession. However, only a nun is there and so he tells her that he helped convict an innocent many and it's been weighing on his conscience--but before he can say more, he dies. The priest and nun from the parish call in Mannix to look into Al Murphy's claim that he made before he died. The problem, however, is that after doing some digging, he learns that Murphy had testified in a case years ago-- but the man he testified against plead guilty! But there is a chance the man in prison is lying and he didn't kill anyone--as there is an interesting paper trail. Additionally, lots of folks start behaving as if there is a conspiracy--especially when they force him off the road! Eventually the trail leads towards a super- rich guy named Taggert-- a man who is obviously modeled after Howard Hughes considering that the man hasn't been seen in many years. What exactly IS going on here?!

This is an interesting and complicated plot. Aside from folks trying to kill Mannix (when ISN'T this happening?!), it's all pretty fresh and interesting...and worth seeing.
