A very brilliant episode in which the villain Mr Logan who uses the hijacks and uses the Seaview to steal the Mona Lisa.
Broadcast in 1965, Mr Logan is described as a genius with the stealing of Mona Lisa being his latest scheme.
14 years later in 1979 Doctor Who presented its own plot of the theft of the Mona Lisa in City of Death with the villain behind this Scaroth also described as a genius.
GB Atwater is superb as Logan in his passion for the Mona Lisa even killing one of his own to protect it.

I was sad to discover afterwards that Henry Kulky (Chief Curley Jones) had four days after this episode was aired but is still seen in subsequent episodes.
Very tragic as he was a fun character to see.
