Trivia

In a 2002 interview for the Archive of American Telelvision, the only thing Marion Ross remembered about doing this show was David Janssen. Although she could hardly remember his name, she remembered that the lead actor was wonderful. "I thought what a great guy he was. And how good he was with the crew. It was so much fun. And sometimes certain stars are kind of a headache." See more »

Plot summary
26 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Kimble's sister Donna (well played by actress Jacqueline Scott) hires a lawyer to help him. The lawyer has good news. A witness (actor Charles Aidman) who now lives in Chicago happened to be driving through Stafford just before he moved to Europe. He saw Kimble driving and almost run down a one-armed man that ran into the street. He did not come forward earlier because he did not know of any murder, it not being covered in the European papers.

The court agrees to hold a hearing, but not until Kimble turns himself in and submits to the jurisdiction of the court. Much of the story deals with Kimble's own investigation and his mixed feelings about coming in.

The story features actress Marion Ross (Mrs. Cunningham on Happy Days) as the wife of the witness, and actor Tommy Rettig (from Lassie) as the son.
