Storyline

The son of a rich man, Marshall Winslow, is kidnapped. The leader is the sickly and mentally unstable DuPree, who shows he is more than willing to kill by twice shooting the chauffeur who was driving the boy. DuPress wants $300,000 and has no intentions of letting the boy, Dan Winslow, go free. Erskine must contend with the bull-headed Marshall Winslow, who wants to do things his way. The elder Winslow, after initially cooperating with the FBI, goes public about the kidnapping and offers a large reward for information about the crime. Written by Bill Koenig

First appearance of William Reynolds
16 March 2016 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

"The Tormentors" is an interesting episode with a very good cast.

A very good cast!

Kurt Russell, who turns 65 as of this writing, plays the kidnap victim. Lew Ayres plays his wealthy father, and Edward Asner, Wayne Rogers and Judee Morton also show up.

Two notable people make their first appearance: Director Jesse Hibbs, who would go on to helm many an episode of this series through to 1970; and William Reynolds, who plays Franklin Benton. Mr. Reynolds gives a memorable performance, and would go on to guest shots in seasons two and nine--and play cast regular Tom Colby from seasons three through eight.

A side note: Lew Ayres' role as a father was something of a mirror to his real life situation. After two failed marriages, he wed Diana Hall in 1964 and became a father during this time period!

Overall, a very good episode that would be a harbinger of the show's future!
