The Adventurer Season 1 Episode 23: Make It a Million

Back home from another film set, Gene Bradley is made aware of an upcoming soiree at his new place. Unbeknownst to Bradley, someone has been masquerading as him and has set up a high profile meeting with some big money donors. For curiosity’s sake, Gene seeks out these tricksters and attempts get to the bottom of this charade and even become the charade. Bradley’s good reputation is at stake as he is being used as a mouthpiece for a confidence trick.

Personal Synopsis

Make it a million is a decent episode and ultimately still holds well against the earlier episodes. Barry Morse directs this story of confidence tricks, doubles and aircraft production.  Gene is the likely victim in this case because of his enterprise skills and multiple successful business, his word can be trusted. I love the wonderfully dramatic scene, the reveal of the Bradley imposter was the funnest part of the whole episode.  A story line of greed and investment advantage is a new plot for this series and a welcome change.
