Storyline

Young Steve Morgan seems almost happy that he's been arrested and taken to jail. Now, maybe the guys at the pool hall will take him seriously. He just hopes that when his stick-up hits the papers, it doesn't come out that he used a toy gun. His cell-mate, much older and much more experienced, warns him against being too cocky. Jail is serious. And the next day's line-up will prove it. The kid doesn't pay attention. But it won't be long before Steve Morgan's flippant remarks begin to catch in his throat. Written by J. Spurlin

Goofs

Hitchcock is processed by the police in the opening scene and stands in front of a height-measuring wall chart. The announcer lists Hitchcock's height as 5 feet, 6 inches. However, the chart clearly shows that the top of his head actually reaches the 5 feet 10 inches tall mark. See more »

Crazy Credits

In his post-show remarks, Hitchcock called the subject of this episode - juvenile delinquency - a grave national crisis, too serious a subject for jokes. This is one of the very few times that Hitchcock ended the show on a serious note instead of his usual flippant remarks. See more »

Not a Bad Acting Job
23 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a bit of far fetched storytelling, a man played by Rip Torn is brought to a lineup to tell about his role in a candy store robbery. He is cocky and loud and disdainful of the other prisoners. He mouths off to the police officers and to the man who interviews him. This use of the lineup is foreign to me. Did they really interrogate prisoners en masse. I suppose this was pre-Miranda. Anyway, he goes against the advice of a career criminal who warns him about his statements. He's more interested in impressing his buddies back at the pool hall to keep his mouth shut. As is usually the case, we have a conclusion that we can see coming a mile away. The lineup scene is, however, quite gripping and the acting is pretty good. It's a reasonably good episode.
