1/9/1968 It Takes A Thief

January 9, 1968.  It Takes A Thief premiered today on ABC.  Robert Wagner's first starring role had him as Alexander Mundy, a cat burglar who reluctantly agrees to steal for a US spy agency, in order to stay out of jail.  Malachi Throne (what a great name!) and later Edward Binns played his boss.  In the third and last season Fred Astaire sometimes guest starred as Mundy's equally crooked father.
