The Private Eye
22 November 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

Jack Colvin(Jack McGee) took a turn directing this episode, which stars Cameron Mitchell as a private detective named Eddie Cain, who tells the police a tale about how he was hired by a wealthy woman(played by Donna Marshall) to investigate a threatening letter that involves her beautiful daughter Vicki(played by Jennifer Holmes). Also implicated in this plot is the mysterious gardener named David(Bill Bixby) whom he can find no information about. Both men will team up to get to the bottom of this mystery, which will involve ruthless and unexpected suspects indeed...Nice change-of-pace episode with good direction and performances trying to emulate a Sam Spade type of mystery.
