Burke's Law
Who Killed the Kind Doctor? (29 November 1963)

Appearing as Larry Forsythe

Broadcast 29 November 1963 on the ABC television network.

Synopsis by curator@jmdigitalscrapbook.com:

Psychiatrist Eric Techman (Philip Reed) is murdered, most likely by one of his patients. Amos Burke (Gene Barry) sets up a scheme to 'smoke out' the killer. With the cooperation of the newspapers, Mrs. Techman (Joan Caulfield), and Techman's secretary Janet Fielding (Susan Oliver), the news is given out that Techman is not dead, but at home sleeping.

They narrow the suspect list down to five: Stripper G.G. String (Sheree North); actress Dorrie Marsh (Annette Funicello); wealthy Larry Forsythe (James MacArthur) -- romantically involved with Dorrie; Larry's mother Helen (Celeste Holm); and Dominic Farrow (Dewey Martin), a ski instructor who suffers from kleptomania and also happens to be romantically involved with Janet.

The deeper Burke and his sidekicks Tim (Gary Conway) and Les (Regis Toomey) dig, the more complicated things get. Not only are Techman's patients the kookiest group of individuals ever to grace a psychiatrists's office, but his wife and secretary are easily as neurotic as the rest.

Will Burke solve the murder before it drives him and his associates crazy? Or will he end up committing a murder of his own as things get nuttier and nuttier?
