2/16/65 "Moon Child"
8 June 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

A group of small time vigilantes is after someone who killed one guy's wife (Murray Hamilton) and one guy's daughter (Harry Dean Stanton) and they think it must be some stranger, (such thinking is common to committees of vigilance). Kimble's in town and so they question him. He basically clears himself but Stanton isn't convinced and wants him finger-printed by the sheriff. This causes Kimble to bolt and a man-hunt to begin. Kimble winds up hiding in an abandoned building which is the private refugee of what we would now call a 'challenged' teen, (the term at the time was mildly retarded, which went out of favor when the last word was misused). She be friends him and hides him there and in her basement- then the real killer shows up.

Wide-eyed June Harding is the girl. He mother is played by Virginia Christine who in the next decade became "Mrs. Folger" in the coffee commercials. She pours coffee for the Sheriff and Hamilton in this episode but I didn't get the brand.
