As presented in this 77 Sunset Strip episode Robert Ivers is probably someone no better than he ought to have been. But retrieving Kookie's wallet, a random act of kindness on Ivers's part earned him a needed freebie from Bailey&Spencer.

Ivers is asked by Simon Scott to burglarize Scott's home, to retrieve some jewelry from his wife. But Marjorie Bennett the wife catches him in the act and she's shot dead. Ivers has been set up beautifully and goes to Edd Byrnes who had befriended him.

Kookie's activity puts the years of relationship between the LAPD and Bailey&Spencer in jeopardy. Truthfully either Roger Smith or Efrem Zimbalist would have handled the situation differently.

There's a deadly mistress in Joan Tabor involved and there's a helpful carhop Zeme North who really helps Kookie crack the case and gets a romp with Edd Byrnes in the process.

Fans should enjoy.
