Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This 90-minute episode of the TV series Name of the Game features Robert Stack as Crime magazine senior editor Dan Farrell. This time, Farrell is investigating charges that the officials of a prison on the Mexican border are shipping out forced labor to local farms. It has been further charged that the officials are getting rich on kickbacks. Assuming a false identity and taking a job in the border town, Farrell runs afoul of hard-case Pernell Roberts and corrupt superintendent Sidney Blackmer. Dorothy Lamour rounds out the guest-star list in Chains of Command, which originally aired October 17, 1969.
