Toni "Feather" Danton was a gorgeous Los Angeles attorney with the firm of Huffaker, Danton and Binkwell who often turned to her con man father Harry for assistance in investigating crimes. "Feather" and Harry often sought to "sting" the bad guys into giving themselves up; on those occasions, they turned to Harry's old partners (including Michael, Murphy, Enzo, Margo & Lou) for help, sometimes using disguises and elaborate playacting.Written by

When movies about con men, such as The Sting and Paper Moon, became popular, TV wanted its share of con men, too (obviously not satisfied enough with network executives). So, they brought in Feather and Father Gang, with Harold Gould and the ex-Girl From Uncle, Stephanie Powers. Didn't work, though. The cons are not as complex as their movie counterparts, nor as well conceived. Sitting through an hour as Powers tries to reform her father, who isn't listening, is quite an ordeal. Thankfully, Switch (Robert Wagner and Eddie Albert) came along and improved the concept, somewhat. Finally, Wagner and Powers had Hart to Hart, and thankfully no more con men (except for those network executives).
