Trying To Save The Boy From Himself
19 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the bad kid-is-really-a-good kid-and-Frank knows it - kind of story. We've had several of these in this series, the others involving woman. A tough guy, "Lt. Ballinger" (Lee Marvin) also is a sensitive guy with a good eye for people.

"Danny Mitchell" (Robert Fuller) is the kid who thinks the cops are after him after an accidental shooting which looks like a robbery. Thankfully, the jewelery store owner is an honest man. You'll see what I mean if you view this episode.

Frank, with the aid of Danny's girlfriend, parents and anyone who can help find him, tries to find the young man, who has gone underground, before the boy really does do something stupid and gets arrested for real.

Virginia Gregg, familiar TV actress, pops up in this once again as does Betty Lynn, who later became famous as the wife of "Barney Fife" on "The Andy Griffith Show!"
