3/17/64: "Taps for a Dead War"
19 April 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

When in Korea, Kimble was medic who got knocked out by a grenade explosion and saved by a GI named Joe Hallop, (Tim O'Connor), who got badly disfigured in the same explosion and also walks with a bad limp because of it. Hallop has become a very bitter man. He thinks society has discarded him and is mad at the world. He figures Kimble should have at least thanked him. When they encounter each other again, Kimble insists that he tried to find out who saved him but couldn't. The physically and mentally twisted Hallop pretends to befriend him but is really plotting to kill him. Hallop lives with his dead brother's wife, (Lee Grant, not long after she came off the blacklist), and son. She has come to love him, despite his injuries but feels neglected due to his obsessions.

O'Connor's make-up here looks painful. It involved pulling the skin below his left eye down a bit. It's a difficult and great performance.
