This was one of the programs that Bobby Rupp and murder victims Herbert, Nancy and Kenyon Clutter watched the evening that they were killed by Richard Eugene Hickcok and Perry Edward Smith (November 15th, 1959). Bobby Rupp was Nancy Clutter's boyfriend and went home before the killers arrived. See more »
Although I do vaguely remember watching this show as a kid, it's not the same story as the film from 1952 which starred James Mason and was directed by Joseph L Mankiewicz.
Fox just used the same title, like they did for their Bus Stop TV series. That one had nothing to to with the Marilyn Monroe film from 1956. They were in a habit of taking old film titles of theirs and making a TV show out of it. They did Broken Arrow, How To Marry A Millionaire, Margie.
Five Fingers did have something to do with espionage, like the movie, but Hedison was a good guy, and Mason played a double agent as a rather shadowy character in the film.
Don't remember much more that that, and it's likely that this series will never be aired again.
