Frequent Mission:Impossible villain John Vernon makes a return appearance in "Movie," this time as mob-connected Hollywood mogul Norman Shields. In order to wrest the Syndicate's financial records from Shields, Phelps poses as Theo Dane, the courier brother of mob financier Benjamin Dane (David Brian). But the more fascinating masquerade is pulled off by IMF agents Barney and Mimi Davis (Barbara Anderson), who respectively impersonate a director and an actress while purportedly filming a recreation of a murder committed by Shields (shades of "The Murder of Gonzago" in Shakespeare's Hamlet!) Scripted by Anthony Bowers, Arthur Weiss, and Stephen Kandel, from a story by Bowers, "Movie" first aired on November 4, 1972.
