Storyline

Bishop John Atwood, a peace activist, is coming to the U.S. to deliver a speech. He has been targeted for assassination by Anton Christopher, who has never been photographed. The FBI is alerted to the plot by a Manilla police officer, who has been fatally shot by Christopher but lives long enough to tell the FBI what he knows. What neither the FBI nor the bishop knows is that one of the bishop's closest friends is part of the plot. Written by Bill Koenig

Cold, calculating and remorseless.
31 August 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When the story begins, a man is assassinated by an unknown machine gunner. As he's dying, he informs folks about another assassination...one to come very shortly. It seems that Anton Christopher (William Wyndom) is a super-assassin, much like the real life Carlos the Jackyl. No one knows what he looks like and this is because he's a very remorseless guy who kills anyone who learns who he is! You see this first hand when he kills the pilot who brought him to kill a famous peace activist, Bishop Atwood (Dean Jagger). Will he next kill his assistant (Tom Skerritt) or will it be Atwood...or perhaps someone else?

This is a very good episode because it doesn't glamorize the assassin and makes him a very ordinary looking man. The script is quite nice and the show well worth your time.
