Narrator: [Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble working on a fishing boat named "Tillicum" at sea but heading for port] The open sea is the perfect haven for a Fugitive - nothing but water and great horizons. But always, the land pulls you back, and for Richard Kimble, the horizon is a small, off-coast fishing island now a strike-torn battleground; a dangerous place for a man on the run.

The great Tuna Strike of 1966....
18 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Tony Donovan (Dean Jagger) owns his own tuna fishing boat. Ironically, his son is behind a strike of the various tuna boats and that is a problem since Tony is a pig-headed guy and insists that he keeps working despite the strike. Richard Kimble has signed on as Tony's knowing the crazy mess he was getting himself into by being on a boat loaded with Albacore. When they return to port, striking men attack and the police end up arresting...and fingerprinting the men. Kimble knows it's just a matter of time before the police return to arrest him for the murder he did not commit. Working in his favor is Tony as well as his daughter (Nancy Malone)--as they both have come to love him and will do just about anything to help him escape. Working against him, aside from the police,...Tony's serious heart disease.

This is a good though not great episode...worth watching though occasionally hard to believe...even for "The Fugitive"...especially the happy ending.
