Kimble pretends to be just who some folks think he is....
When the show begins, Richard Kimble (David Janssen) is posing as Al--a guy working at a gas station. Unfortunately, a couple dirt-bag armed robbers show up--killing the owner and taking a woman and Al hostage. Al is smart and keeps his wits...and then pretends to be the type of folks everyone thinks Richard Kimble is. He gets these crooks to slowly trust him and his hope is that will give him a chance to at least get the female hostage (Brenda Vaccaro) to safety. Later, they learn he's not Al the criminal but Richard Kimble the 'killer' and now they REALLY like their new hostage!
The title of the episode does not mean that the show is set in Hollywood. It actually begins in New Mexico and the criminals plan on eventually make it to Hollywood in their spree.
Overall, this is a very exciting and fast-paced episode. The actors playing the dirt-bags did a nice job in making the audience hate them!
