Mild, at Best
28 May 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Slender premise without much development adds up to low-grade Hitchcock. Matronly Alice (Byington) who lives with daughter Mabel and son-in-law Leo, is mugged on downtown street. Taking it to the cops (Dunne), she unexpectedly spots Leo's mug shot on "wanted list". Will she turn him in—after all, they seem like such a nice young couple and it is her daughter's happiness.

Dunne does well as the cagey, low-key detective, as does the perennially girlish Byington as the conflicted Mom. However, the amount of screen time spent poring over the mug shots exposes the spare screenplay and premise. There is, of course, the expected twist, but it's pretty mild given the series standard. Usually dependable scenarist Slesar was stretching it out on this one.
