DANGER MAN - "Time To Kill" (1960)

Tonight's Wild Wednesday offering fits in perfectly in between last Saturday's and next Saturday's Carl Jaffé tributes! 
From 1960, it's "Danger Man" Season 01, Episode 02 titled "Time To Kill," referenced in the third of Carl's tributes!

This episode starts off immediately with Carl Jaffé in a scene outdoors at a barbeque!

Carl's character is a very valuable man named Professor Barkoff who can't decide on the dill pickle or the mango chutney on his hamburger! The hostess with the mostess is Louise Lauette Cordier aka Louise (The Saint) Collins. Her last named changed to Collins when she married British race car driver Peter Collins! Sad story, Peter was killed on the track, only one year after their wedding.

They've got it out for Professor Barkoff, and his life is in peril!

Even though he's in the gunman's sights, Carl is very relaxed and appears to be enjoying himself, and why wouldn't he be? Looks like a pretty easy role for him, all he has to do is relax and enjoy eating a hamburger.

Then right about the time you think it's all over, the Professor gets a reprieve!

Nice portrait of Carl, don't you think?

Son of a bitch, they shot him! What the heck?

Putting the word Paris on a shot of the Eiffel Tower is fairly redundant!

"Danger Man" gets his assignment!
Kill the guy who killed the Professor!

Just to reinforce how imperative the situation is, there's a photo of the deceased Professor!

Velcom to the border, can I see your passport please? 

The rest of the episode, "Danger Man" and Sarah (Island of the Burning Damned, Jason King) Lawson as Lisa Orin, spend a lot of time together uncomfortably. He wants the killer, and she wants to know what's going on!

"Did you hear shots?"

 Cool Bauhaus ending credits!
I'm not a shill for Amazon, and I sure as Heck don't get paid for telling you that all four seasons of "Danger Man/Secret Agent" stream for nothing if you have a Prime account. I just think it's a good idea to let you know where the good things are when I stumble on them. I wouldn't have known if I wasn't writing this, so chances are, you might not either.
