Storyline

Ernie Walters has just been released after six years in prison. It was determined that he was falsely convicted of a gas station robbery and now wants to get even with the detective and District Attorney who convicted him. Wearing a disguise, Walters robs the local tax office but drops his hotel room key as he makes his escape. He's quickly re-arrested by the same detective who arrested him six years previously but the witnesses can't quite identify him. Will he get away with it? Written by garykmcd

Alfred Hitchcock Presents: THE KISS-OFF (TV) (Alan Crosland Jr., 1961) ***
15 March 2010 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

An interesting, character-driven and quite well done episode in which, to get back at the Police for a six-year prison sentence over a false accusation, Rip Torn commits a bank robbery under heavy disguise but taking care to leave behind the incriminating key to his own hotel-room! Of course, he is immediately picked up for questioning (which pleases his old nemesis Bert Freed no end) but, though the three eye-witnesses of the theft acknowledge a comparable stature between Torn and the aggressor, they cannot bring themselves to point the finger of suspicion at him! When the cop threatens to indict him regardless, Torn dares him to do so, since he knows full well the evidence will not stick (especially in the face of the earlier miscarriage of justice he had sustained)…
