Trivia

In the opening narration, Friday states that $100,000 worth of furs had been stolen. $100,000 in 1967 is equivalent in purchasing power to $753,628.74 in 2019. See more »

Goofs

When Hartman helps Miss Hilliard into the azurine coat, he turns her toward a half-length wall mirror. No real furrier would provide a mirror that only shows the top third of the coat he is trying to sell. The salon should have a full-length mirror at a minimum, but would be more likely to provide a three-panel mirror that shows all sides. See more »

Who Are The Finks Who Stole The Minks?
4 April 2008 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Animal Rights groups have made furs, I assume, almost a thing of the past, but for anyone still interested in how they make mink stoles and how you can tell a cheap one from a good one, this is your episode. It's actually pretty interesting.

"Bill Gannon" has to learn the business in a hurry after some thieves rob "Emile Carden" (Henry Corden) of a big load of them. Corden plays the stereotypical Jewish merchant from New York City with the thick accent and speech mannerisms. He teaches Bill what he knows in one day so the latter can go undercover as a buyer for the stolen merchandise.

It's a decent episode, with a little bit of humor thrown in and some suspense when Bill and "Joe Friday" (Jack Webb) set up and execute the "sting."
