Typical type story executed in well above average fashion
A plot synopsis might make you think you could skip this episode as a been-there-done-that affair. But the mechanics of that typical Hitchcock TV format are smoothly executed and the acting--as usual--helps. What elevates this to real drama--not TV melodrama-- is the unusual set up of what must be a Korean Vet returning home with his Asian bride. This gives novelty to the show and a real freshness--even now years later-- to the stay-at-home-bride's plight that follows. Other very strong element Loggia's performance in particular and Herrmann's score. Not to give anything away but there is a murder sequence where Loggia and Herrmann will really knock you out emotionally.
A well, if unobtrusively directed, and strong formula episode which, regardless of being an hour long works especially well because in this case the extra time helps let the characters develop and actors really dig deep. Watch it!
