Almost all the episodes on "Lock Up" were better than most TV fare of the day or today. There were a few other forerunners of "Lock Up" that equaled the show, "Dragnet" in particular. One aspect of this show that makes it worthwhile watching is the writing of Robert Bloch, who made the audience terrified in the Hitchcock masterwork, "Psycho." He was at the height of his creativity when he penned "The Beau and Arrow Case." Another reason for viewing this particular episode is the watch a young James Best in action. Best has never got the recognition he deserves, ending up playing such one-dimensional characters as Roscoe P. Coltrane on "The Dukes of Hazzard." The case involves the victim being killed by an arrow being thrust into his back. Although the plot is somewhat predictable, "The Beau and Arrow Case" is still a well-written, well-acted mystery drama with a surprising chemistry between MacDonald Carey and character actor John Doucette.
