Storyline

While studying at Honolulu University, the Princess Jehan, the daughter of a rich eastern European oil baron, mysteriously disappears. Although her body is never found, all signs point to murder, and a very violent death. Though failing to produce any evidence, the police are convinced that the Princess's murderer is Champ Foster, a man from a wealthy and influential Hawaiian family. They moreover believe that he is responsible for at least half a dozen other murders around the USA, but his family's money and influence has literally enabled Mr. Foster to get away with murder for years. Jim Phelps and his team of agents get the mission to find out whether or not Champ Foster really did kill the Princess Jehan, and if so, to find that crucial piece of evidence. Written by Anonymous

Out to catch a psychopath
10 March 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I wish I'd watched this one with my wife, as she was a huge Parker Stevenson fan back when he was on "The Hardy Boys"....especially because in this episode of "Mission: Impossible" he plays a serial killer!! The mission is to try to get a confession out of him, as he's likely murdered a young princess from an important Arab oil nation...and her disappearance has soured relations between the countries. They prove he's the killer and prosecute him, then her daddy and his nation will be grateful.

To do this one, the first convince Champ that he has a new BFF...a fellow psychopath who admires his work! Then, they use a stage mentalist act to convince him the man has amazing supernatural powers. Where exactly does all this go? See the show.

This is a mildly interesting episode. Part of the time I wondered why they went to so much trouble...taking him hostage and torturing him would have gotten the results sooner...but alas, that is NOT the IM Force way! A good episode.
