It seems a simple case. A man is identified as a murderer by a witness. A friend of his says the guy was with him at the time, driving to Connecticut. The prosecutor then trips the friend up and he admits he was lying but then announces that the defense attorney, Lawrence Preston, told him to lie. The bug-eyed look in E. G. Marshall's face is priceless.
He chooses his hot-headed son Kenneth to defend him, a risky proposition in more ways than one. But Ken comes though, winning the case with a deft court-room maneuver.
As always, once of the fascinations of this show is to see legendary actors early in their careers. In this case it's Robert DuVal as the perp, who "wants the world to share my misery" and Robert Loggia as his foolish friend. Malachi Throne is the prosecutor this time around.
This show is sometimes compared to Law & order. one of several differences is the court rooms they use: the one In L&O is much prettier. But maybe a drab court room contributes to sober deliberations.
