A Murderous Groupie
16 February 2017 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

A tough guy that Pete helped send to prison gets shot by a mystery woman. Now Pete's got to find out what happened since many suspect him of the killing. It doesn't help that the dead guy has an equally tough brother and a scary father. Good luck, Pete.

Different kind of premise from the standpoint of the killing's motive. Otherwise, it's a fairly standard episode. Edie gets to croon a torch song, after which she and Pete cuddle on the balcony. And catch the colorful Oscar (Johnson) doing a little gender-bending as an art dealer. And that's along with chubby Mary Smith (Frazee) as a hooker, a bit over the hill, but always willing to accommodate. And, of course, there's the great Harold J. Stone as the intimidating family head. Then too, mustn't forget Mary Sinclair, very effective as a cold-blooded mystery woman. Check out her bio that's rather interesting.

Anyway, all the earmarks of the classic series are on display in this 1961 entry. So give it a try.
