"I am interested in your "U.S. Border Patrol" site; I appeared in one episode,
(possibly #1.37 "The Deadly Fool")
which as I recall was filmed in Miami (Coral Gables, I think) around
September '59. As I recall, I wasn't using my real name at that time, but
the stage name Jeanne Rainer (I think). My name has been spelled both that
way and alternately Jeanne Rainier, and Jeanne Ranier. A blond woman named
Lisa who was a tv newscaster also appeared in the segment -- can't remember
her last name, but she had interviewed Castro and later committed suicide.
Most of the segment was filmed on a houseboat. I would love to get a copy of
this episode. Do you have any information that would be of help in tracking
down the episode name and how to get a copy? Thanks for your help.
Sincerely,
Jeanne Rejaunier <erejauni@tampabay.rr.com>" (August 2003)
