12/17/63: "Terror at High Point"
8 April 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

Jack Klugman is running a construction gang on a big project. His wife, (Elizabeth Allen) has convinced him, against his will to take on a semi-retarded worker Jamie, (Buck Henry). Richard Kimble is also part of the crew, doing the timekeeping. He befriends Taylor, who is constantly the butt of jokes among the crew, especially one played by James Best. Jack, (his character's name, ironically, is "Buck"), had a retarded brother he had to spend his early days looking after and he grew tired of it and l the attention the brother got. Then his wife is assaulted and Jamie is seen running from the trailer. Kimble again has to go into his sleuth mode to determine what actually happened.

This was filmed at an actual construction site. The head of the crew was an out-of-work actor who let them use his site if he could have a role in the story. Judging from his IMDb resume, I think he might have been Russ Vincent, who plays "Rufe", one of the troublemakers. Another one of the trouble makers, "Mike" is played by Billy Halop, the original leader of the Dead End Kids.
