Apologies but audio slightly out of sync in places....Sword of Justice was an American action-adventure television series that aired on NBC for one season during 1978-1979. This series was considered a mix of The Saint, It Takes a Thief, and The Rockford Files. Dack Rambo plays Jack Cole, a rich playboy by day, a troubleshooting mercenary by night (à la The Saint). During a prison sentence for a crime he did not commit (à la Rockford Files), Cole learned how to crack safes, break into banks, and most of the other secrets of the criminal trade. Upon release, he decides to turn the tables on criminals by fighting them at their own game (à la It Takes a Thief), and using a unique way to leave his message: the "3" from a deck of cards, indicating how many years he spent behind bars. On these cards would be a written warning for the criminal(s). The three of clubs read: "The club is the sign of vengeance -- it holds no man as friend." The three of spades marking the end of the game, read: "The spade is the sword of justice -- its rapier marks the end." The series was produced by Glen A. Larson.
