His well ordered academic life
22 February 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A couple of 40 somethings Joseph Cotten and Julie Adams are doing some antique shopping. As Cotten is an archaeologist that comes naturally. But Cotten sees the face of John Hoyt in the shop window and he changes from the charming Joseph Cotten we all know in the movies to something quite different. He's ready to drop his well ordered academic life to get Hoyt.

It's Adams who brings in the Checkmate team to prevent Cotten from killing Hoyt and ruining his life. There's another performance here from Simon Scott, friend of Cotten's who has even more reason to have it in for Hoyt.

This is one of the best Checkmate episodes yet.
