Just the sort of thing you might expect from Alan Ladd.
6 March 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This action-packed episode of "General Electric Theater" is just the sort of thing you'd expect from Alan Ladd--and I mean this in the best possible way.

Ladd plays a reporter/writer named Dan Holiday. Dan is a bit of a nut in that he doesn't want to research for his next book--he wants to experience it himself. However, when this opportunity is thrust upon him, maybe it's far more than he ever wanted. It seems that an evil wife and her equally evil lover have killed her husband and to hide it, they've picked some similar looking schnook (Holiday) and had him committed to a mental institution. When he protests that he's NOT her husband, the psychiatrist explains that it's all part of his psychosis. This is because this evil rat is ALSO in on the scheme--and it looks like no matter what Holiday says, no one will believe him. And so it's all up to the pugilistic Holiday to make sure folks know...with his fists!

This is a very taut 30 minute show with some wonderful twists and is very well written and acted. Excellent in every way.
