You Can't Go Home Again
6 March 2007 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Suspenseful half-hour that remains one of the series' more memorable. John Forsythe returns home after a long stay in France, to reconcile with his aging father. Just what caused the father-son rupture, we can't be sure. However, people treat him oddly upon seeing him again. In the meantime, his father has died under uncertain circumstances. There's a dark undercurrent here that's being withheld. But what is it?

Good suspense as the mystery deepens. First-rate cast, including early Cloris Leachman and George Maceady in rare non-threatening role. If you have enough of a premonition, you might guess the solution. One question: it takes Forsythe 3 hours to hike to a remote mountain cabin, yet Leachman arrives a few minutes later in a dress with heels, no less! There's a real mystery here.
