I really liked this one!
11 July 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This edition of "The Star and the Story" stars Dan Duryea--a guy most associated with playing cockroach-like guys in films and on TV. Here, however, his part is more complex. While he is a man who has served 15 years in prison and is now in a mental asylum, he isn't a bad man--or at least he wasn't. It seems that Jim was convicted for murder--but this was based on the testimony of a child who made the whole thing up just to get attention!! Now, years later, this witness (Beverly Garland) comes to Jim and tells him she's going to try to make it all up to him! How can she make up for 15 years of his life? And, can Jim possibly trust this woman?!

Seeing how this sweet and interesting story plays out is a treat. It also helps that both the leads were really convincing. I know I am a bit of a softy, but I though this one was great--especially with the rather schmaltzy turn towards the end.
