Cutting Edge Episode
28 November 2017 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Speedy episode that's also cutting edge for its time. Jacoby's kidnapped to prevent the kidnapper's brother from going to the chair at midnight. So, Pete, with his contacts, has got to hustle for Jacoby's sake. Note the bold touches for 1959--- a Black cop with authority, a Liz Taylor look-alike wanting masochistic sex, a trumpet horn hiding Pete's face. Then, of course, there are the staples-- -cool urban jazz and implied non-marital sex between Pete and Edie. Thanks to episodes like this, the series amounts to a milestone evolving out of the conformist 1950's.

And catch cast presence of legendary trumpeter Pete Candoli. Too bad he doesn't get more tooting time (may have been a budgetary concern). Also, good to see 50's juvenile delinquent Richard Bakalyan picking up a payday. Note too, how Pete steps outside his urban boundaries even if the woodsy exteriors are a studio set. And finally, I'm glad Edie gets a chance to put off Pete's romantic advances since he's always doing it to her so he can chase off on a case. Anyway, in my book it's a revealingly superior episode from a classic series.
