3/15/66 "With Strings Attached"
4 December 2015 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

This one features Rex Thompson, the outstanding 50's child actor, ("The Eddie Duchin Story", "The King and I" and, especially "All Mine to Give"), who gives what is apparently his last acting performance as a violin prodigy who is sick of the instrument being his whole life. He's also sick of his dictatorial teacher, (Donald Pleasance), who is jealous of his talent. His own career suffered from the lack of it, as well as a surfeit of alcohol. Kimble gets a job as the household chauffeur and befriends both Rex and his assistant (Carol Rossen, in the fourth of her five appearances on the show).

Rex is so sick of Pleasance that he sets up a murder to make it look like Pleasance got drunk and Rex had to defend himself. Kimble has to prevent it- but wants nothing to do with the police. Kimble advances from a drifter at first turned down for the job to a man who has earned the trust of everyone to dominating the situation with amazing speed. Pleasance is wonderful, going from the household dictator to a pathetic, frightened drunk and totally convincing at every step along the way.
