December 12, 1963 [192] "The Case of the Bouncing Boomerang"

Director--Jesse Hibbs
Teleplay--Arthur Orloff

Rod Cameron stars as Grover Johnson, a man who managed to talk his beautiful new bride, Eula, into living with him on a barren 1,000-acre desert spread. Trouble is, Eula hates it. When a wealthy Texan (played by Alan "Gilligan's Island" Hale) shows up and offers Grover four times what the property is worth, he takes the bait and signs it away. Little does he know that his lovely wife is behind an elaborate swindle, and that the Texan will soon die with his dental bridge--if not his boots--on.

The scam goes awry, however, when Eula is killed and Grover is charged with the homicide.
