Trivia

Four years prior, David Janssen and Laura Devon were co-stars in Route 66: One Tiger to a Hill (1962), with Janssen being a lot less charming and Devon looking quite young and fresh-faced. See more »

Quotes

Penelope Dufour: Oh well, shoot. I'm getting sick and tired of always being told I'm wrong. You know I was doing pretty good before I met you and I'll probably go on doing pretty good after I leave this dump.
Dr. Richard Kimble: Probably.
Penelope Dufour: But what?
Dr. Richard Kimble: I didn't say anything.
Penelope Dufour: It was there just the way you said, "probably."

3/1/66 "The Chinese Sunset"
6 November 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

One of the problems with "The Fugitive" compared to "Route 66" and other shows is that it's pretty hard to have a comic or at least a light episode when your premise is a fugitive searching for a one- armed man who committed the crime he's accused of and chased by a policeman who wants to bring him in to be executed.

But they give it a good try with "The Chinese Sunset". Kimble is working at a hotel in Los Angeles and encounters Laura Devon who is what amounts to the "moll" of a flashy but small-time crook played by Paul Richards. Richards is a con man running out of money who thinks that everybody is basically corrupt. Laura just wants him to settle down and marry her. She's pleased that Kimble treats her with respect and impressed that he talks like an educated man. She'd like to talk that way: maybe it will impress Richards and get him to want to marry her.

The episode has been compared to Pygmalion, (the basis for "My Fair Lady") but I think it more resembles "Born Yesterday".
