Episode Summary

EDIT
Who Killed Madison Cooper?
AIRED:
Hotshot lawyer Madison Cooper calls Burke as he dies in a seedy part of town of stab wounds inflicted elsewhere. He had just put a large amount of cash into a newspaper vending booth and Burke finds that Cooper was dying and had been trying to contact former clients whom he had wronged in the past. With the help of Cooper's executive secretary, Burke investigates the old cases, including a murder trial, an prison sentence that resulted in death, embezzlement, and a paternity scandal.moreless

      • Original Library of Congress Registration #: LP31079Effective Registration # & date: RE-598-374 Dec. 8, 1992.

      • According to the February 1981 issue of Reruns Magazine, which covered every episode of the series, both Gene Autry and Tony Martin made unbilled cameo appearances in this episode. If so, just like in Episode 9, that footage was deleted when the episode was shortened for syndication.

      • The shot of Henry smoking and waiting for Burke outside of Amy Booth's house is the exact same shot used when Henry waited outside "Mrs. Bowie's" rooming house in "Who Killed Holly Howard?". You can even see the name "Bowie" over the entrance.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • :
        The music selections the violinists play to serenade Lovey Harrington in the bar are "The Moon of Manakoora", Dorothy Lamour's signature theme from her most famous sarong epic "The Hurricane", and "Moonlight and Shadows", which she sang in "Jungle Princess".

        In "Pinky", Jeanne Crain played a black woman who "passed" for white; in this episode, she "passes" as an Asian woman.
