June Havoc is a real treat for viewers in this McMillan&Wife story where brunch at her place which also includes Susan St.James and her mother Linda Watkins is broken up when Havoc's prize winning Pekinese is kidnapped and so is her trophy husband Yale Summers. Havoc in her most extravagant manner leaves no doubt which is more important. In fact she wants the police out of her business, but of course they can't just do that. And with his wife and mother-in-law involved Rock Hudson just has to give it personal attention.

In fact Havoc is happy when the dog shows up and then says investigate all you want for Summers, but she doesn't really care. In fact a second outrageous character in the episode is Sheppard Strudwick who is Havoc's lawyer. He might be a lawyer, but Strudwick plays it as the kind of gay man who gets invited to parties for a witty remark or three and to even out the boy/girl ratio. That was still done then.

I wish we had seen more of Wally Cox as the veterinarian for the Pekinese. Cox was hardly intimidated by the police commissioner investigating a crime if it interfered with his job.

But this one is really June Havoc's show.
