19th-century government agent and master of disguise Jeff Cable operates out of a secret room in a San Francisco casino owned by his best pal Cash Conover. Conover is sort of a dandy, and would rather avoid trouble at all costs, but Cable's persuasiveness coupled with Cash's sense of duty and a weakness for the fairer sex shared by both men usually leads them into dangerous missions.Written by

This was the first program from Paramount Television to lead in to ABC's incarnation of "Monday Night Football", something done more successfully by "MacGyver" years later. Paramount also produced "Call to Glory", "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" and "The Marshal" which all had one-season turns leading into MNF. See more »
I saw the film only once. I missed the first part of it. I remember seeing this burly, scruffy, rough looking guy come into a pub and walk into a back room. As the man started to peal off various items, I noticed his eyes. After a few moments, I realized that it was, William Shatner. WOW! I loved it. For the rest of the movie, I couldn't wait to see what sort of disguise he would appear as. The China man in the end was choice.
I have always thought that it must be an actors dream-come-true to be able to play all of those wild and fascinating characters all in one movie.
I only wish that I could see it again, however, if I understood Mr. Shatner during an interview on Regis, there were no video version made for distribution. I respect that, but will never forget that movie.
