Storyline

While investigating the murder of a pretty young career girl, Friday and Gannon meet a little old man named Calvin Lampe who is more than a little interested in their investigation. In fact, he even is looked at as a suspect because of his attention to every detail in the case. However, the two detectives are in for a big shock when they find out that Mr. Lampe is a retired chief of detectives and that he is a good friend of their boss, Captain Hugh Brown. Lampe's know how and good old fashioned detective work are a big help as Joe and Bill try to solve a very difficult case. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

Mustin wasn't really 91... just born looking that old.
7 July 2010 | by jbacks3See all my reviews

Jack Webb must've liked Burt Mustin--- he employed him (undoubtedly at union scale) no less than 10 times across all of his shows. It's a little surprising that he never became a member of his stock company (think Virginia Gregg, Casey Harris, et al). The old guy was a spry 84 here and cast as a retired apartment manager who recently hit 91. This episode is, by color Dragnet standards, pretty explicit; the female victim is shown hog tied and very dead. Mustin plays it cagey delivering Webb's famous machine gun-clipped dialog that never steps over another actor's lines. There's an emphasis on depicting "modern" (circa 1969) police investigative techniques and Mustin plays the red herring bit to the hilt with a mildly surprising twist ending. Webb's economizing is always apparent in these later episodes; there's, I think, only 3 interior sets used here, along with the second unit-shot stock exteriors starring that '67 Fairlane. Here, I wanted to see the victim's now valuable Pontiac GTO... alas, unseen but much discussed.
