Roddy MacDowall shines as a skid row bum, a former teacher down on his luck, who gets tangled up in a murder case when his best friend is accused of having slain the wife of a department store magnate. MacDowell is convinced his buddy, now deceased, could not have done the crime, and pursues the matter. In the process, he finds redemption. The episode was shot in part on the gritty streets of downtown Los Angeles and boasts a sterling supporting cast, many of whom play fellow derelicts. The ending comes as a pleasant and unexpected surprise. For those of you who only know MacDowell for his childhood roles, playing opposite Flicka and Lassie, his part here will astound you.
