Pic of the Day: “The Odds Against Donald Jordan” revisited

Today we revisit the Mannix episode “The Odds Against Donald Jordan,” first broadcast on March 1, 1969. Mannix (Mike Connors) is paying a visit to his hipster bookie pal Moose to, well, get the odds against this Donald Jordan fellow (James Olson).
