This is the final episode of "Kraft Suspense Theatre"--a series that ran two years and which is now (mostly) available to watch for free on YouTube. I'd recommend it even if the episodes are a bit uneven.
This episode stars Gary Lockwood, Don Gordon and Sally Kellerman--a pretty impressive lineup, though the series frequently had very impressive casts. Lockwood plays Frank Connery...a pianist with a past. And it seems tonight his past has caught up with him, as a pair of goons arrive at the bar where Frank's playing piano. They're there to take him to see Severin (Gordon) a psycho gangster whose girlfriend Frank stole some time ago. Frank is now expecting to die. Is there any chance of a reprieve? Well, it isn't clear...and Severin doesn't do anything at first. After a while, however, it seems that Severin really loves toying with people...like a cat toying with a mouse that it's captured!
The show works well. Not only is the plot exciting, but Lockwood did a really nice job and Gordon (a highly underrated actor) is wonderful as the mentally disturbed and sadistic gangster. At least the show ended on a high note.
