Quotes

Narrator: [Epilog Closing Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble walking down a back road, trying to thumb a ride] Some men can never be free. From birth, they are their own jailers, they are their own prisons, they are trapped by their own talents. For Richard Kimble, a Fugitive, freedom is flight; for flight brings hope and with hope, there is always tomorrow.

This unusual episode is pervaded with an atmosphere of gloom that is not alleviated until the end.

Geoffrey Martin (actor Rex Thompson) is a British 17 year old who is a master violinist. His parents years ago signed over his care and training to an agent, Max Pfeiffer (actor Donald Pleasence). Kimble gets a job as their chauffeur. Also living in the mansion is the secretary, Ellen Harned (actress Carol Rossen).

Geoffrey is a sensitive but troubled young man who travels the world giving concerts. He lives under the heavy-handed, oppressive rule of Max, himself a former violinist. Max believes that genius carries responsibility, and that Geoffrey has a duty to the world to be the best he possibly can. Geoffrey is alone and friendless, and itches to be free of Max. Kimble and Ellen feel great sympathy for Geoffrey, but Kimble is suspicious of some of his actions.

As the conflict between Geoffrey and Max comes to a head, police involvement endangers Kimble, who takes great risks to prevent a tragedy.
