Storyline

Norman Logan and William Tritt both live in the same boarding house. Tritt is a teller at a local bank and Logan is convinced the Tritt cheated him out of $200 on a deposit he made a year ago. Since that time he has been harassing Tritt in an attempt to get him to admit his error, but to no avail. Logan then hatches a plot to discredit Tritt in the eyes of his superiors at the bank. He buys a fake gun and pretends to rob the bank but by the time Tritt has raised the alarm, Logan has hidden the gun in an unused and nearly impossible to see drawer in an old table. He continues with these charades until he finally gets what he feels is his due. Written by garykmcd

Purposely Silly
15 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Once in a while, the series just launched into silliness. This plot involves a supposedly wronged man played by Dick York, later of the show "Bewitched." York's character launches a full frontal assault on a fellow boarding house bank teller whom he feels cheated him out of two hundred dollars. The mans failure to acquiesce leads to a series of efforts by York to destroy him. His set ups result in the poor man embarrassing himself time after time. We never know if there ever was an inciting incident (the two hundred dollars) but we are expected to sympathize with York's Captain Ahab. I just couldn't do it. The bank teller is so badly treated that I couldn't overcome the tongue in cheek portrayal. Is two hundred dollars enough incentive to destroy a man's life and cause him to live in fear. Of course, I'm overreacting to an old TV show.
