Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The Incomparable Connie Walker was first broadcast as the January 24, 1969 episode of the TV series Name of the Game. Conway "Connie" Walker (Ivan Dixon) is the first black mayor of a large unnamed city. In addition to suffering the slings and arrows of racism, Walker is the target of accusations that he has been accepting kickbacks. Crime magazine reporter Jeff Dillon (Tony Franciosa) investigates when a city accountant is murdered. Since The Incomparable Connie Walker was designed as the pilot episode of a proposed Ivan Dixon series, we are confident that Mayor Walker was exonerated by final fadeout time.
