Thief's bad luck
22 February 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Dean Stockwell's performance as the Nathan Leopold like character in Compulsion no doubt led to his casting in this role in Checkmate. He's a brilliant kid whose car is stolen and it turns out grabbing his car was part of an overall scheme I won't get into.

It was the car thieve's bad luck to have Stockwell eye witness their crime. Worse luck for them in that stealing his car they ran down and killed one of his fraternity brothers.

These two who were eye balled dead bang by Stockwell work for Henry Jones. Let's say that Stockwell has some plans for Jones as well.

The Checkmate regulars are more witnesses than participants in this story. Turns out Stockwell is one of Sebastian Cabot's most brilliant students.
