Mousey bank teller Oscar Blenny, a guest at a desert casino, is enamored with Eva, a seductive casino hostess, who's happily juggling 2 male co-workers. With the sinister Bill she's conniving to ripoff the casino. When her boss discovers she's two-timing him, their confrontation turns violent and she kills her boss. Realizing that Oscar's just outside, she screams, so schlemiel Oscar can corroborate her damsel-in-self-defense tale. The casino owner limits the publicity damage, by firing Eva and exiling Bill, who drops Eva cold, to Mexico. Eva cadges a ride to L.A. with Oscar and soon they are wed. When Oscar is nominated for a promotion, slovenly drunken Eva is a big liability, especially when Bill resurfaces in L.A. Does Eva kill Bill, will Bill reveal all about Eva, or will Oscar decline the award? Written by David Stevens

One scene in this story brings together three icons of 1960s TV, shortly before their big series hit the screen: Larry Storch (F Troop (1965)), Alan Napier (Batman (1966)) and David White (Bewitched (1964)). For icing on the cake, George Petrie, a character actor who appeared on dozens of 1960s shows, is also in the scene. See more »

Don't Mess With The Wrong Guy
25 March 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Excellent entry that sustains interest all the way through. Slutty Eva (Christian) bludgeons one of her two lovers, and needs a quick way out of town. Mousy bank teller Oscar is immediately smitten, and together they marry and escape. But, of course, Eva has no intention of being the good wife, especially when former other lover Bill (Silva) shows up. So what's going to happen to poor meek and mild Oscar. Then again, being Hitch, you know things aren't always as they seem.

Is that really the buffoonish Storch from the infamous F Troop, playing Oscar. I'm still in doubt, but I guess miracles do happen. He's about as repressed in his role here as he is clownish as Cpl. Agarn in the 1965-67 series. Still, he pulls it off persuasively. And what guy wouldn't fall for the beauteous Eva. You just know she's going to victimize the little guy. Then factor in the sinister looking Silva as a master manipulator, and you've got a terrific triangle. But what really impresses me is the ending. Only Hitch's revolutionary transposing of the law triumphant from on screen to his epilog could get away with that soul-satisfying last scene, where justice, I think, triumphs over law. Anyhow, in my book the entry's a series essential.
