Mac is told that the necklace is real and it may be stolen at the ball. Mac tries to persuade Connie not to wear this necklace to the ball, but she refuses.

Infidelity in society
23 March 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

John Wayne got a lot of laughs appearing for a few seconds in a pink bunny outfit on Rowan&Martin's Laugh-In. I guess that was the inspiration for Rock Hudson doing more than a few seconds in a pink bunny costume. All part of the plot mind you as he gives chase to a suspected thief trying to steal a valuable necklace.

It all has to do with infidelity in the high society set that Hudson and Susan Saint James are mixing in when McMillan is not a hands on police commissioner. But as we know when crimes hit close to home as they do here among his friends there's no stopping the latter day Nick&Nora Charles from getting involved.

The object is a valuable necklace which may or may not have been already stolen and or pawned. Of course Hudson giving chase a suspected thief in a devil's costume in the bunny suit is quite a good sight gag. Those big feet were definitely not made for foot pursuit.
