A diamond suit bids full your cup- with wealth and earthly things, The heart sign speaks of lasting joy that loves own magic brings, The club is the sword of justice-it counts no man as friend, The spade marks final judgment-its trumpet sounds the end.
Adopting the above poem as his secret anthem, Jack Cole baffles his adversaries by leaving cryptic playing cards behind as his own "calling card" during his nightly derring-do in NBC-TV's new action adventure series, "Sword of Justice."
The special significance of each of the four suits is explained in the poem's eight lines, which Cole uses to his advantage. The three-of-diamonds left in plain sight indicates money and affluence; the hearts promise love and emotion; spades portent judgment and inevitable retribution; while clubs is the fulfillment of the cycle, the actual meting out of justice denied — or — the "Sword of Justice."
Cole selects the number three card in each suit to illustrate the three years he lost in prison on an embezzling frameup. The satisfaction he gleans from his enemies' perplexed reactions is a highly personal one, the origin of which remains a mystery to all but Jack Cole.
Dack Rambo stars as Cole, a wealthy playboy, who, following his release from prison, seeks vengeance on the white-collar criminals who set him up.
Bert Rosario and Alex Courtney are series regulars.
Following his release from prison, Jack hires his ex-cellmate, Hector (Rosario), an amiable, wisecracking Puerto Rican, and begins living a double-life. By day, he's a tennis-playing charmer trying to recover from his three-year nightmare. But at night he discards this glamorous life for clandestine maneuvers and gathers evidence to convict the same unscrupulous hoods who are now trying to muscle in on a family winery. Capitalizing on Hector's street-smarts and his own prison "education," Jack intends to frustrate the takeover and avenge his disgrace.
