Storyline

To remain straight, an ex-con informs on the would-be robbers of a bar where he works, instead of helping the stickup men, his former pals. But the hoods' connection to Link Toland, a seemingly respectable businessman with serious political juice, cranks the heat way up on the young informant, his family, the investigating detectives, and even the tavern owner.

A nice guest appearance by Robert Duvall.
24 January 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Robert Duvall stars as an ex-con named Barney Sonners in this installment of "The Naked City". Sonners is trying to get his life together. He's got a wife and kid and loves them. However, he's been approached to help a group of hoods rob his place of business. He's no dummy and contacts the cops--who capture the gang and put an end to their plans. The problem now is that the gang knows who turned them in and until they are incarcerated for good, Barney is nervous. It gets even worse when he and his wife start getting threatening phone calls. And, worse still when someone tries to kill his kid. Will Barney live to testify against these creeps? And, just as important, who is making these phone calls?

This is a particularly good show. Duvall's acting is quite nice and he makes for a very sympathetic character. Not action-packed, that's for sure but a nice portrait of a scared man who has finally had enough.
