Sy Salkowitz’s preem script for “Ironside’s” second season had Raymond Burr matching wits with a master jewel thief played by Sorrel Booke, while insurance investigator Charles Aidman, worried on the sidelines. At stake was a multi-million-dollar jewel collection that had to be transferred safely from San Francisco airport to a local museum and out again. The thieves let the collection in to ascertain Ironside’s plan, but was left facing a “Shell Game” on the way out.
 
The episode downplayed Ironside’s trusty aides stet characters Don Galloway, Barbara Anderson and Don Mitchell, in favor of some solid character-acting by Burr, Booke and Aidman. It also eschewed violent action in favor of cops and robbers expertise for its basic excitement. This shift from last season’s frequent and sometimes grisly mayhem was welcome for the opportunity it afforded straight thesping in a tonier context. “Ironside” should hold up for at least another season.
