This episode offers the viewer a glimpse of two stars in the making: Jill Clayburgh and Suzanne Somers). Clayburgh plays Marilyn Polanski, a model whom Jim Rockford (James Garner) meets while working for Ginny Nelson (Somers), the "widow" of a man (Fred Beir) reported killed in a plane crash. It turns out that Ginny's husband Steve is still alive, and up to his neck in an insurance swindle. And as luck (?) would have it, Marilyn is the only eyewitness when Jim is kidnapped by the minions of two shady characters who have a vested interest in maintaining the illusion of Steve's demise.
