Richard Kimble, Fugitive, pauses here in his endless flight. For as long as he dares, he will be David Benton, research technician.

Pretty good slice of southern Gothic. Kimball's hired on to a southern plantation where the family has a dark past. Actually, the strongest reason to catch this entry is cult actress Gloria Grahame as the sinister step-mother. Her looks are still distinctive and attractive for her 40+ years. It's also about 20-years before she died in relative obscurity. Good also to see that fine actor Richard Carlson as the reliable plantation owner, and doing something besides chasing space aliens and communists. Rounding out the cast is a delectable Shirley Knight as the afflicted daughter. If I were Kimball, I'd sure warm up to the boss's daughter. Speaking of Kimball, catch his well calculated, low-key reactions to events. Actor Janssen enhances stories without competing with them, a key, I think, to the success of the series. So, is Knight just imagining the barking dogs that earlier mauled a boy to death, or is somebody up to no good. And, if so, why. And will that jealous sheriff keep nosing around Kimball the fugitive from the law. Stay tuned.
