Cinnamon poses as a psychic to lure an industrialist into a poker game to retrieve top-secret NATO information he possesses.
#28 - S1E28 - April 22, 1967
Guest Richard Anderson - who is frequently on almost anything it seems. The beautiful and charming Cinnamon (Barbara Bain) was suitably convincing as a psychic, with a little help from the IMF of course!
Some interesting comments on the intro, which I had to watch a couple times to catch:
Right after the title sequence, Agent Dan Briggs drives into a deserted Drive In movie theater to receive his next assignment. The marquee for the theater says "Geller and Solow 'Spend the Money' " As stated in other posts.. this was to be the last episode where we see Agent Dan Briggs played by Stephen Hill.
The production staff was growing weary with the mounting difficulties that Stephen was causing (likely not intentionally).. He had converted to orthodox Judaism which greatly affected his availability.. additionally he was injured performing a stunt in one episode which made filming his shots more difficult.
Geller = Bruce Geller Solow = Herbert R. Solow
During the intro scene, Steven Hill (real name Solomon Krakovsky) drives into an empty drive-in theater to get his mission. His car passes under a marquee which reads:
"Geller and Solomon... Spend the Money..."
I'm guessing this was snuck in to the final print as a joke given that this would be the last episode that Steven Hill would be playing in the series. I'm hoping that someone with some knowledge of the show can add to this. I couldn't stop laughing when I saw it given that Mission Impossible was a very serious show, addressing many of the serious issues of the day.
So what is the real meaning? That is an impossible mission in itself!
there doesn't seem to be anything here
