Mostly action strong episode
21 October 2013 | by (French Polynesia) – See all my reviews

This episode is taught and loaded with action, well-staged, moodily photographed and directed and it features a very impressive scene involving fire.

It's well scored too. It works all around and Hugh does well as does John Anderson--playing a heavy here. It's well produced by Norman Lyold who produced many of the series best episodes and I'd put this among the best. I suppose it lacks a little bit of psychological torment or regret the situation might bring, as it goes more for the action of the story. But this may actually be a virtue in this format. The show flies by.

Richard Matheson's novel was later made into a film with James Mason, he adapts it here himself to better effect--though I find the film to be better than it's reputation.

Hithcock's wrap around involves him inside a manhole.
