The Show

This is part one of a two-part crossover episode that finished on Barnaby Jones: The Deadly Conspiracy (2). This was the second time the two detectives met, the first time being the premiere episode of Barnaby Jones, "Requiem For a Son".

For syndication purposes, the two episodes were edited together and made into a single Cannon episode. Diana Douglas's role in the edited episode is totally cut out.
