Storyline

Joe Kedzie is released from prison after committing a robbery. Only Joe knows where the money is hidden: at the bottom of a mine shaft out in the desert. Maxie and Madge find Joe when he goes to retrieve the money. He agrees to cut them in. Maxie gets greedy and Joe shoots him. Unfortunately, he also puts a hole in their only canteen. Joe lowers himself down the mineshaft with a rope to retrieve the money. He ties the money to the rope and sends it up. When he tries to climb out, Madge cuts the rope and he falls and breaks his leg. Madge tries to get away, but discovers that Joe has the keys to the truck. Written by Anonymous

Why Did He Bother With These People?
22 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know that this series was pretty lightweight most of the time. So maybe it's not fair to criticize the plots for being just plain stupid. Let's see. The guy gets out of prison. He was betrayed by his buddies and gets 10 years. He alone knows where the money is. Where does he go to enlist some help. Back to the woman who two-timed him and the guy who should have shared the punishment. Again, 10 years of waiting and this is the plan he comes up with. Not only that but he puts himself in a position where they can screw him again. Perhaps he could have waited a few days, enlisted a little help from someone for a few bucks and a phony story. Nope, he takes along a cobra in his pants pocket. There is some suspense involved if you can get past what I just said. Of course, once the money is found, his "friends" are going to kill him and take it. What transpires reminded me just a bit of Von Stroheim's masterpiece, "Greed." Although that great film had substance. The acting here is good. Hitchcock managed to get the cream of TV actors of the time. The story is just too fantastic.
