Storyline

Gerald Daniels is granted a last request on the eve of his execution. He asks for a typewriter. He writes a letter to a newspaper that recounts his criminal career. In the letter he explains how he once murdered a waitress who was trying to blackmail him, how the D.A. convicted her ex-husband of the crime, and how the man had been executed. He writes that he, now, is in the same position: he is going to be executed for a crime he did not commit. Before his death, he wants to testify that the D.A. is not only a sloppy prosecutor, but also a murderer. Written by Anonymous

Cockiness Is Next to Godliness
22 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One of most frequently occurring characters in these 1950's dramas, is the irresistible wolf who hangs around bars, waiting for bored women to come in. In this case, the guy has created a cottage industry. Unfortunately for him, he now finds himself on death row, and while he has committed murder, he did not commit the one for which he was convicted. He decides as his last act to ask for a typewriter and some paper so he can write a final diatribe against the district attorney who put him in his current circumstances. In telling his tale, he admits to several murders that he did commit. The episode is a dramatic portrayal of the other murders; in each case, a woman trusting him and finding out too late what he truly is. It's not a bad episode and it has the "Hitchcock" ending. Harry Guardino is cast perfectly as the handsome cad with the knowing little smirk.
