You can live without it

Paul Wendkos, probably one of the greatest director for TV industry, made this tepid episode. A boring court drama, as we have seen a billion times before. And I must admit that I hate this kind of story.

A murder is committed in San Francisco, and a district attorney investigates. Nothing here to get you stuck to your seat. OK, not the entire story takes place in a court room, only the first and last part of the show. Clue searching, a little romance, it remains an adequate mystery yarn. I expected more from Paul Wendkos. This was in in early career, he made much better later for TV. Pne of his first pieces of work were THE BURGLAR, for the big scren, from David Goodis' novel. And also some good war movies.

Back to this episode, I think it would interest many of some rare TV stuff purchasers.

But not me. I like unusual stories too much.
