Smooth with the ladies, tough with the guys
17 January 2017 | by MissClassicTVSee all my reviews

What a slick and fun episode. Richard Diamond is at his smooth talking best with four different women in this show.

He's at home waiting for his date Nancy to show up. Vivian calls him - she's his phone service but he doesn't recognize her at first and proceeds to flirt with her. She tells him a new client wants to see him. So he leaves to go meet client George Dale but when Diamond gets to the hotel, there's no client. Instead Madge is there. They banter, she tricks him, and he ends up getting knocked over the head and he's out like a light. When he comes to, a couple of hoods take him to the waterfront and work him over. (His smooth talker skills don't work as well on men.) He and Lt. McGough head back to the hotel to see if any clues have been left behind in the room. A new hotel guest has checked in. Sally from Boston is very cute; it's her first night in New York and Diamond is charm personified as McGough looks on amusedly. Later, Diamond tracks down Dolly, the girlfriend of the guy who beat him up. Dolly's a waitress at a beer joint. At first she doesn't want to serve him. But by the end of their conversation, he's talked her into opening the kitchen and making him fresh coffee. In the middle of all this, there's a case to be solved involving a stolen painting.

In the end, McGough visits Diamond at his apartment and interrupts Diamond having dinner with Sally. Diamond's handsome, Sally's beautiful, and they're dressed to the nines. It's a well paced show and David Janssen, Regis Toomey and all the female guest stars do a great job delivering their lines.
