****SPOILERS**** Handsome ladies man and con artist Roger Fellon, Bradford Dillman, has been smooching his way east from his hometown of San Francisco targeting lonely homely and single middle age women to pay for his bills and for his lifestyle by conning them that he's in love with them. Fellon ran out of luck in the Big Apple, New York City, when the NYPD finally caught up with him but only after he broke two more hearts of the women that he claimed to be in love with by winning over their confidence, as well as love, and robbing the homes that they worked in as maids. In the 65th police precinct lock-up Fellon shows his true feeling about the women that he took advantage of by virtually spitting in their faces when they came there to either press charges against him or even try and bail the ungrateful jerk out.

Fellon's first victim in the Big Apple Josephine Herdon, Frances Heflin, was devastated by his actions and almost ended up not wanting to press charges against him even when he threw a cup of hot coffee in her face! But the second and far more homelier and less attractive and elderly women Virginia Cort, Eileen Hackart, didn't take Fellon's uncivilized actions laying down. She knew just what a slime-ball he is and despite falling for his act at first she was ready to let him know what she felt about him in ways that he never expected!

***SPOILERS*** Both touching as well as powerful performance by actress Eileen Hackart as lonely and taken advantage of Vrginia Cort makes this Naked City episode a cut above the rest. Confronting Fellon in his holding cell Virginia wasn't taken back by his actions of both putting her down and trying to humiliate her like Josephine Herdon did. She not only stood her ground but let Fellon know what a decent and feeling person she was even towards a low life like himself. Virgina even thanked Fellon for making her feel wanted by a handsome devil like himself when almost every other man she came in contact with who were far less attractive then he is wouldn't even give her a second look.

Fellon was taken totally off guard in what Virgina told him and for once in his rotten life realized what rat he really was. Here he had a women who was ready to give up everything for the creep and at the same time he treated her like dirt! What that all showed Fellon was that Virginia Cort was far more decent loving and yes beautiful inside then he'll ever hope to be both inside as well as out!
