"No thanks, I'll just have my usual cup of coffee."
-the mantra of Jeffrey Jones

JEFFREY JONES is an ex-G.I. working his way through law school by doing a little part-time P.I. work. Tea-totaller Jones inexplicably works out of New York's Golden Bubble Bar and Restaurant. He was often aided in his work by smart reporter/girlfriend "Mike" Malone.

Pretty standard fare, filmed on location in Hollywood, although there was a touch of whimsy to the proceedings. Here he is, describing his most recent state of unconciousness (K.O.'s were a weekly occurrence): "...and so I sank into lullaby land, where dappled horses were prancing through a field of yellow roses and a beautiful princess was stroking my hair."

The Files of Jeffrey Jones was a 1952 syndicated series, which many assumed was a spin-off from another show, The Cases of Eddie Drake, which had also starred Haggerty as a private eye, although all they really have in common was their star.
