The only reason I watched this episode of the series was to see CAMERON MITCHELL in his first screen role. He's hardly in it--only at the start and finish--but narrates most of it.
He's in jail about to be released and still thinks the life of a gangster can be a glamorous one. He reads all about the exploits of one of his favorite criminals--and in the end, is shown what has happened to that "glamorous" creature who is now a sad relic of the man he used to be. This, supposedly, convinces Mitchell to go straight once he's released.
It's totally unconvincing and fails to make its point with any distinction. Definitely one of the weakest entries I've ever seen in this so-so documentary series, never subtle in its approach.
