Episode Summary

A frustrated police detective hires out heroines to help him nab Roy David, a notorious gambler-thief suspected of burglarizing a security company of $40,000 to replenish his gambling money. Charlie's Angels are called into the case to obtain the necessary evidence to convict him of the crime. Sabrina and Bosley dupe the gambler into betting nearly half of the loot on a losing horse at the race track, Jill then takes over the scheme at the gambling tables to cheat him out of his remaining money. With David penniless and in desperate need of renewed gambling stakes, the Angels make it easy for him to follow his usual burglary pattern. In front of the startled eyes, they carefully stage a hit-and-run accident in which Jill is apparently killed with detailed floor plans and safe combinations to the casino in her possession. David, of course, steals the plans and immediately sets up a burglary. When David tries to make his getaway from the casino with the stolen money, Kelly stops his escape by ramming her car into the back of his, thereby causing a great commotion into which the police are summoned.moreless

  • A Gambler's Nightmare

    I like the sleek and sly way the Angels tapped out the Gambler and leading him to steal money to feed his addiction.

    Sabrina and Bosley playing the horses and Jill playing blackjack at the casino.

    Jill faking the hit and run accident and leaving the floor plans of the casino on street so the gambler picks up them and uses it to his advantage

    Kelly gets into a fender bender with the gambler/thief and the authorities discover the money in the back of his car. He tries to escape, but doesn't work. He is apprehended.

    I like at the end of the Angels, and Bosely are looking at the gambler/thief through the window while he is being interrogated.moreless
