Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Attorney Theodore Berringer (Simon Oakland) is none too fond of his current clients, a band of scofflaw anarchists. When the gang escapes from prison, they take Berringer's son Ted (Brad David) hostage to ensure the elder Berringer's cooperation. As it turns out, however, Ted is a willing accomplice of the anarchists--though he is blissfully unaware of their sinister plans for the future. Thus, Ironside (Raymond Burr) must not only rescue Ted from the villains, but also from his own misguided idealism. Featured in the cast is Christina Crawford, adopted daughter of movie queen Joan Crawford and future author of the infamous tell-all biography Mommie Dearest.
