The Mystery of Edward Sims is based on one of the many "Gallegher" stories by Richard Harding Davis. Roger Mobley stars as Gallegher, a turn-of-the-century teenaged newspaper reporter. Gallegher tries to use his journalistic knowhow to help a Cornish immigrant accused of murder. Once this is taken care of, Gallegher helps the Cornish man's family, who have been swindled by a con artist posing as a respectable banker. The Mystery of Edward Sims premiered as a two-part Wonderful World of Disney episode, originally airing March 31 and April 7, 1968.
