Well done.

This episode of "Four Star Playhouse" is directed by Blake Edwards and stars Dick Powell. Powell plays Dave Robinson--a very tired detective who is in need to a long rest. So, he heads into the mountains to do some fishing and relaxing. He stays with a nice family and everything is going great. However, due to some odd things the family says, the detective in him wonders if perhaps the missus is actually a wanted woman. Before he can take any action, Dave becomes deathly ill--and the same woman he might be ready to arrest nurses him back to health. Once he's better, he has a choice...but what will that be?

This show is nice because it offers an interesting moral dilemma--the law or the spirit of the law. Because it starred Powell and was directed by Edwards, you know that it will be a quality production throughout. Well worth seeing.
