Tim Stone hires the agency on behalf of his uncle, Jake Garfield, a former Depression era bootlegger who, after the end of Prohibition, was nonetheless convicted on such charges as tax evasion. Jake has just been released from prison and has been living like he still did in 1935 before his incarceration. Since his release, two attempts have been made on his life. Jake is certain the attempts were made by Lawrence Renaldi, a rival bootlegger in the 1930s and who now on the surface is a respectable businessman as a beer manufacturer. Jake is also certain that Renaldi was the person who, in 1935, killed Jake's wife, Rosemary Garfield in an accidental shooting in the Garfield's limousine believing the person in the car being Jake. As the attempts on Jake's life may thus be tied to Rosemary's murder, Tim wants the Angels and Bosley not only to provide bodyguard services for Jake in discovering who is trying now to kill him, but also find out who killed Rosemary.

A tragic story, with more depth than you'd expect
26 February 2021 | by Milk_Tray_GuySee all my reviews

Certainly not the standard Charlie's Angels fare. The Townsend agency is hired by a 1930's bootlegger who's just been released from prison, to look into the unsolved 1935 murder of his wife (to whom Kris bears an uncanny resemblance). As the investigation progresses, events of the present begin to mirror those of the past, leaving Kris in an increasingly dangerous position... This is a slower-paced episode than usual. There's no running around, and hardly any gun-play. It's all about the characters, and the legacy of tragic events long past. It evokes a fantastic sense of 30s nostalgia (that's on top of the 70s nostalgia experienced when watching the show now), and has a real bitter-sweet feeling throughout. There's a wonderful performance from Ramon Bieri as Jake the bootlegger, whilst Cheryl Ladd gets to show some real acting chops as Rosemary, Jake's dead wife. With beautiful direction by Ronald Austin (one of four episodes he directed overall) and writing by Lee Sheldon, this may just be the best of the whole run. 8.5/10
