A black mark
11 July 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Several years ago the Bailey&Spencer team could not recover some stolen loot and it remained a black mark on their record. This episode of 77 Sunset Strip has Stu Bailey reopening the case after one of the suspected robbers is shot in a phone booth in a Hollywood nightclub.

Fortunately for Bailey it's a good thing that Spencer was in Europe on another case or this might never have been solved. As you see this has international implications.

The head of the gang that pulled off the robbery is Michael Pate reportedly in Spain. Pate also plays the owner of a Los Angeles pet shop hence the title of the episode.

You've no doubt figured out part of it, but there is more, quite a bit more in this story. Pate does a fine job in playing the mild mannered pet shop owner and a ruthless gangster. Shades of Edward G. Robinson in The Whole Town Is Talking.
