Robert Redford as a vicious killer
27 October 2012 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Right Kind of Medicine" is classic Hitchcock, starring 24 year old Robert Redford as convicted robber Charlie Pugh, escaping with a suitcase full of cash stolen from a jewelry store safe, managing to gun down the cop in pursuit, who succeeds in wounding his killer in the leg. Charlie seeks out a shady physician, Dr. Emmet Vogel (Gage Clarke), who reports how the bullet passed clean through, and offers a pain killer prescription which the desperate killer must fill while trying to avoid detection in a busy pharmacy. Gage Clarke manages to steal his scenes, but Redford is quite convincing as a vicious killer, in his second year on television, going on to do 3 hour long Hitchcocks over the next two years.
