Haunting storyline - could have been done better
21 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

I so wanted to like this episode. With an actress of Lee Grant's caliber as a costar, I expected a lot. It's a small part, though. Her character, Millie, is a widow who seems quite independent. But she's in love with her brother-in-law, Joe, and therein lies the problem with this episode. Joe (actor Tim O'Connor) is a bitter Korean War vet who hates Dr. Kimble. Meanwhile, Kimble doesn't even recognize that he served with Joe in Korea because he had only been with the unit a couple of days. Joe is mean and miserable to everyone. It's incongruous that a woman as strong as Millie would put up with a character like Joe.

The episode is useful in that we get a little more background into Dr. Kimble's life. We learn more about his time in Korea during the war. And we see the always athletic and active David Janssen roller skating, which is kind of fun.

This was filmed in 1964 so Lee Grant was about a year into the process of rebuilding her resume after 12 years of being on the blacklist. This episode, unfortunately, is a showcase for Tim O'Connor, not Grant. Overall, it was disappointing.
