Jeremy Slate and Neile Adams
27 October 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"One Grave Too Many" is a fine entry, centering on poverty stricken Joe Helmer (Jeremy Slate), who has been out of work for three months, as wife Irene (Neile Adams) informs him that the electricity has just been shut off. Spending most of his time attending the cinema, Joe now tries to get a loan of 100 dollars, but the manager (Howard McNear) is unable to comply. Walking the streets, Joe sees an older man collapse of an apparent heart attack, his wallet revealing a total of 250 dollars in cash, which Joe steals. Telling his wife he'd collected on an old debt from an army buddy, any chance to rejoice is scuttled when he discovers a card in the now empty wallet, stating that its owner is not dead, merely a victim of catalepsy. Neile Adams is best remembered for the Hitchcock episode "Man from the South," co-starring with her husband, Steve McQueen.
