Goofs

When Kimble asks people to donate blood he only states that Gerard's blood type is type B, without mentioning the necessary Rh factor, a critical point he shouldn't have ignored. (If Gerard's blood type is B- he could easily die if the donor is B+.) Alternatively, Kimble could have asked for blood type O-, which is universally acceptable by everyone, regardless of their own blood type. See more »

Quotes

Jonesie: [Throughout the episode Jonesie gradually sings this song one stanza at a time] From the hills at night the outlaw came, / Just running for to live, / And the pretty little girl never knew his name, / Still all her love she give.
Jonesie: It's a sad, sad song that I'm singing, / It's a sad, sad tale that I tell, / About a love that a poor girl is bringing, / To a man who is destined for Hell.

3/8/66 "Ill Wind"
11 November 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

Kimble is back doing migrant farm work. In fact he's made a lot of friends, including John McIntyre and Jeanette Nolan, two of my favorite actors. Gerard has again tracked him down and, in a hauntingly filmed sequence, has trapped him in a train station. He captures his long- time prey but a hurricane forces them to take shelter with the migrants, putting Gerard in a situation similar to the one he faced with the back woods people in "Corner of Hell": they are on Kimble's side, not Gerard's.

Then Gerard gets hurt and Kimble cares for him. Gerard sees this as an attempt to gain his sympathy. The migrants don't understand it at all. What they are missing is that Kimble, as a doctor, has a sense of professional ethics that are just as strong as Gerard's, if more humane. Gerard needs a blood transfusion: are there any volunteers?

The hurricane in this one is done much better than the one in the first season's "Storm Center". They show less but hint at a lot more and it comes off much better. This episode is enhanced by Tim McIntyre, (John and Jeannette's son), playing and singing a ballad called "The Running Man", (why didn't they call the episode that?), throughout with the lyrics being changed as the situation changed. The ballad was written by the show's executive producer, George Eckstein.
