Happy birthday, John Creasey: The Baron (1966-67).

To celebrate today's birthday of the indefatigable John Creasey (1905–73, who published at least 500 mystery works), look at "The Seven Eyes of Night," an episode of The Baron, a TV series (loosely) based on Creasey's character John Mannering. In this incarnation, antiques dealer/secret agent Mannering (Steve Forrest) pursues con artists (including an unscrupulous Jeremy Brett) who fleeced him out of a large sum of money.
