Recap

New Jersey waterfront. 1933. Johnny Mizo has been marked for death but a South American crime syndicate in Brazil where he'd fled six years before. Mizo has returned to the United States to retrieve $200K from a robbery which he had stashed before fleeing. With this money, Mizo hopes to buy his way out of the death sentence. The captain of the ship on which Mizo arrived tells him that he has 11 days before they sail back to Brazil. The night is foggy and a Brazilian sailor exits the ship before Mizo. Four Chicago hoods, waiting on the pier, mistake him for Mizo. He turns to run and gets shot. One of the hoods, Paul Santos, gets shot dead by the police. The other three escape...

Episode Notes
Tim Considine probably took time off from his role as Mike Douglas on My Three Sons to appear in this episode. Both shows aired on ABC at the time so the network probably arranged things.

Locations: Chicago, New Jersey, Rockland IL



Episode Quotes
Majesky: (to Cole) You give me one good reason why I shouldn't have you dumped in the river?

Cole: We'll grab him. I promise you. Don't worry.
Majesky: Not me. You worry.

Hobson: It's still only a theory.
Ness: That's what they told Einstein.

Majesky: (to Claire) When I want jokes I'll hire comedians.

Majesky: (to Claire) If Johnny calls you and you don't let me know I'll cut your throat.



Analysis
With guest stars like Rip Torn and Claude Akins this one should have been a slam bang episode. Instead we get another fairly routine Season Four entry that has its moments but drags quite a bit in spots.
