Synopsis by Hal Erickson
American defector Howard Bainbridge (Frank Farmer) returns to the US for one last reunion with his son Paul (Anthony Norwalk). Unfortunately, Bainbridge gets into an argument with his ultra-right wing father Justin Bainbridge (Andrew Duggan), who ends up killing Howard and burying the body on his huge estate. The IMF's mission is to recover the body--and with it a sample of the deadly contaminated nerve gas that the defector had been working on before he died. Scripted by Ed Adamson and Ken Pettus from a story by Adamson and John D.F. Black, "A Ghost Story" originally aired on February 27 1971.
