    Review The Man with the Scar

    A large, varied cast, a well written story has the makings of a great episode played out with some familiar and not so familiar faces. There are several things to watch for as Pete touches leads through his contacts, meeting bad guys and girl along the way. The introductory staged shooting was merely a ploy to bribe the DA to drop a criminal case against an unscrupulous man, with many accomplices. Jacoby doesn't appear in this episode, but our PI manages to win without his help, but not before having a cleaver thrown at him and shot at by the man with the scar. Watch the character actors appear, in aid to Pete and against Pete. Billy Barty as Babby and Charles Horvath as Julio are two worth watching, Billy in character as a pool player and Charles performing a stunt after being shot. Above average fair with Pete following the clues around town to a Chinese restaurant!
