11/15/66 "Approach With Care"
31 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

This one is obviously inspired by "Of Mice and Men". Denny Miller plays the simple-minded giant, well- intentioned and friendly but who doesn't know his own strength and can hurt people in a fight. He tries to join some kids in playing football but pushes one of them down. The kid is mildly hurt but his mother wants Miller arrested. He runs and hides out at a carnival where Kimble is working.

Our hero finds him a job as a roustabout, not knowing the police are after him. He has a sister who has taken care of him but who wants to get married to a fiancé who doesn't know about Denny. She wants to institutionalize him to obtain her own freedom. The tragic ending is predictable, as is the episode. Dr. Kimble once again gets to show his gentle side.
