It's in this episode we find just exactly how old Chief Ironside is. He was in the class of 1940 which meant he was 18 that year. The episode was broadcast in 1974, you do the math.
Raymond Burr has gone east to attend his class reunion and he brings Elizabeth Baur with him as he got a cryptic note about a recent death of one of his classmates. We also learn that the Chief was center on his high school football team which won the state championship in that year of 1940. Leading the team was a brilliant young quarterback who was killed in an automobile wreck right after the championship. Let us say his death affected a lot of people in many ways.
A whole flock of guest stars like Anne Francis, Jackie Coogan, Marshall Thompson, Leif Erickson, and Fay Spain are all in this episode. Sad to say though I knew from the beginning who the responsible party was and I think you will to if it is broadcast.
But it was nice to see Raymond Burr revisit his youth.
