Another very interesting TV show story

We don't find many of these topics in movies. Really. The tale of a clerk, petty employee who, in order to offer a last voyage in Honolulu to his dying daughter, becomes a criminal in falsifying checks on a large scale. Forgery. And, of course, we can watch the leads of the series, the"good cops", chasing him. Tracking the poor guy.

This is a painful story, because we feel sorry for this man, this desperate guy played by Whit Bissel. The ending is devastating for the audience. But the ethics must be saved at all costs. We think of old CRIME DOESN'T PAY stories made by MGM in the 40's.

Direcetd by the old timer Peter Godfrey.
