Episode Summary

EDIT
Who Killed Supersleuth?
AIRED:
The five greatest detectives in the world become murder suspects when Police Chief Gaynor is murdered in a locked room right under the noses of his bodyguards - Tim and Les. As if that isn't bad enough, a huge diamond, belonging to one of the detectives, is stolen at the same time. Rather than solving the case, each of the detectives (the sexy Russian commissar, the head of the Surete, the chief of Scotland Yard, the Tokyo police official, and the arrogant amateur) seems to do everything possible to make Burke's job even more difficult. Even after recovering the missing gem, he is no closer to the solution. Inviting all the suspects to his home, Burke plans to unmask the killer, but first finds Henry's body slumped over the desk, a crimson stain spreading across his shirtfront!moreless

      • Zsa Zsa Gabor tries to slap Burke in this episode, decades before she succeeded in slapping a traffic cop in real life.
        She also strenuously objects to being called "dahling" (a word almost synonymous with Zsa Zsa).

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • :
        This episode contains parodies of Agatha Christie's sleuth "Hercule Poirot", Arthur Conan Doyle's "Sherlock Holmes", Rex Stout's "Nero Wolfe", and John P. Marquand's "Mr. Moto", as well as many of the great plot devices of Golden Age murder mysteries, beginning with the classic "locked room" murder.


        Like most Mr. Moto and Charlie Chan movies of the 30's and 40's, Mr. Toto is portrayed by a non-Asian actor. J. Carrol Naish made a career of playing roles of practically every ethnic background except his own - Irish.
