Back for the third post in a row on the 87th Precinct. I discovered an episode of the television series that starred Robert Lansing as Steve Carelli and Ron Harper as rookie detective Bert Kling. Norman Fell appeared in four episodes as Detective Meyer Meyer and Gregory Walcott as Detective Roger Havilland in four as well.
The story is of a young mother found shot to death at her place of employment. As the detectives of the 87th interview family, friends, acquaintances, and the lover, differing pictures of the victim emerge. Loving mother, ambitious wife, pool hustler, a woman wanting success. But no clear idea of who the murderer was.
R. G. Armstrong has a significant role as the boss/married lover and Nancy Kulp, Miss Jane from The Beverly Hillbillies has a small part in the prologue as the woman who discovers the murder victim.
I enjoyed the look into the old series and recommend it for anyone interested.
