Storyline

The FBI is called in to investigate a case of sabotage at a tungsten mine in New Mexico. The bureau is concerned because the metal is vital for U.S. defense and aerospace efforts. But the sabotage has nothing to do with the Cold War. Rather, it is the work of Tom Rule, whose son was killed at the mine and whose grandson wants to work there. Rule, believing the mine will soon close down anyway, wants to prevent his grandson from following the same path he did. What he doesn't know, and one reason the FBI is involved, is that a large deposit of tungsten is near the mine. Rhodes, investigating the case, goes down into the mine to question Rule. Meanwhile, Rule has planted a bomb. He, Rhodes and other miners are trapped in a cave-in because the mine elevator wasn't working properly. Erskine can only watch anxiously as rescuers, including Rule's grandson, try to free the entombed miners. Written by Bill Koenig

McIntire & Son.
31 August 2019 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The very prolific character actor John McIntire stars in this one as a grouchy old guy who hates his job at the mine. After all, his son was killed there and he has lost friends to this awful job. But when his grandson wants to follow him into working in the mine, the grandpa's had enough and goes about trying to destroy the mine! After killing a guard, he even goes so far as planting a bomb in the mine...and the F.B.I. is trying to stop his terrorist activities before more people die.

Having McIntire in the show was great. After all, John was an excellent actor. However, his real life son, Tim, was not so welcome in this one...mostly because they kept having him sing annoying little songs....so annoying I'm taking a point off this one. Still, in spite of this, it's worth seeing if you like the show.
