Episode Summary

EDIT
Who Killed the Jackpot?
AIRED:
When a wealthy banker is found murdered in a seedy hotel, it becomes a race to see who will catch the killer first - Burke or glamorous private eye Honey West, who had been hired by the victim. The banker had been planning on skipping the country with a huge amount of cash, now missing, along with his gun. Was his wife, the sleazy yacht owner she was involved with, the dead man's attorney, his very "faithful" secretary, or a local scuba diver in on the deal? Which was the killer? Will Burke or Honey figure out the crime first - and will they survive (one suspect already has been murdered!)?moreless

  • When a rich man is found dead at a seedy hotel, Amos Burke must match wits with a glamorous lady private eye.

    5.5
    Not just any private eye, either - Honey West had her own series a few months later, and, even though it lasted just the one season, it's remained bright in the memories of many fans, including Quentin Tarantino. It might even be Anne Francis's best-remembered role. Watching this sort-of pilot episode, though, one wonders how it ever got off the ground. This is a pretty dull show, and only Ms. Francis's crisp assurance and blithe way with a wisecrack keep one at all interested. John Ericson - who played her brother in the classic 1955 movie, "Bad Day At Black Rock" - is a tiresome sidekick, and, amongst the suspects, Louis Hayward looks vaguely ill and George Nader smiles most peculiarly, as if he'd taken a few stiff drinks first.moreless
