Very good, though I found the end a bit difficult to believe
26 September 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Dick Powell stars as a detective who has just returned home after a long, tough day. However, his day is about to get MUCH tougher. That's because his loaded service revolver disappears just moments after he comes into his house. And, there were a lot of folks in the home who might have taken it. In a panic, he runs from the house--desperately hoping to find the gun before someone gets hurt.

I was surprised that the people who made this episode were concerned enough with realism to put fake bullets in the gun--ones which looked real when you see the gun closely. However, one thing I didn't like in this otherwise excellent episode was the ending--it all ended with too much happy family mirth. In reality, I think the parents would have screamed and knocked the snot out of the kid who took the gun. Even the best of parents wouldn't have been as nice as Powell and his wife were in this one!
