|December 19, 1965  "The
Case of the Golden Girls"
This is the second episode based on Gardner's 1940 novel The Case of the Vagabond Virgin.
Victor Montalvo is co-owner of the popular Golden Bear Club, a nightclub featuring beautiful waitresses known as Teddy Bears. One night, Victor gives a ride to a young female hitchhiker and is later surprised to see the girl in the club working as a Teddy Bear. Not only that, but Debbie Conrad, the young lady in question, attempts to blackmail Victor, threatening to claim he took advantage of her.
Debbie is working the scam with her boyfriend, Rick Durbin, and Victor grudgingly agrees to pay them off. Before he can, he has new problems. His partner in the club, Stacey Garnett, is murdered and Victor is the chief suspect. In order to clear Victor, Perry first has to get testimony from Debbie Conrad, who is played by Angela Dorian, Playboy magazine's "Playmate of the Year" in 1967.
