Danger Man - The Girl Who Liked G.I.'s TV review

Our Throwback Tuesday post takes us back into the Cold War spycraft of Danger Man. Drake (Patrick McGoohan) looks into the murder of a U.S. soldier on leave in Munich who had knowledge of a secret missile project. Retracing the dead man’s final day in the city which leads him to assume the role of a soldier himself and get a date with the local woman (Anna Gaylor) who was the last person to see the soldier alive. While initially suspicious of her, especially after he is attacked by two men following their date, Drake soon discovers the woman has nothing to hide (other than a disapproving father and a weakness for American soldiers). It turns out the soldier’s death has nothing to do with the girl, or the soldier’s top secret clearance, but only with a single photograph the man took around the city that someone is willing to kill for.

“The Girl Who Liked G.I.’s” is mostly memorable for Drake in the uniform of the soldier for much of the episode. The girl’s unusual behavior concerning hiding her true residence turns out to be nothing more than a red herring as the attackers also ransack her home in search of the missing photograph. In the end, with the girl’s help, Drake gets a look at the photo worth killing for and is able to capture his killer.
