Storyline

After work, Lucy, a keypunch operator, meets Walter, a short, balding, bespectacled computer technician who is her supervisor. She tells him that he is a forgettable bore, and hands back her ring, breaking their six-week engagement. Walter walks past a custom wig shop, and enters. Soon he is persuaded to buy a $250 human hair toupee and beard. He stops at a bar and overhears Noreen and Curly talking about sailing. He tells them that he is Philip Marshall, an expert yachtsman who has sailed the Caribbean and around the world several times. Noreen tells Curly that it is 5:15, and he is late for an appointment. When Philip and Noreen are alone, he offers to teach her how to sail. He then goes home to his room and board walk-up, where the manager, Mrs. Adams, confronts him.

A really good episode with Blyden's best ever performance
21 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is not particularly outstanding for the story, though it is perfectly fine as a melodrama and in good stead for a Hitchcock episode.

It is Larry Blyden's performance as a sort of Jeckyll and Hyde character, or a pre-Buddy Love type, that sets it above the average episode.

It has to be the best performance of his career, at least the best I've seen, and it shows that this fine actor had quite a range that could extend far beyond the TV comedy show guest parts he typically played. See it for this reason and you will enjoy it.
