7 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Spoiler Alert !

A 'Robert Stack' Segment Episode

Who protects the 'forgotten prisoners' if the guards are corrupt....?

Howard Publications 'CRIME' Magazine Editor Dan Farrell (Robert Stack) becomes suspicious regarding claims that the inmates of a small rural State Prison are being secretly used as 'Slave Labour' by the ruthless staff who are selling their services to the local farmers.

Going undercover Dan Farrell therefore takes a job as a prison guard to see what information and proof he can uncover.....but is he putting his own life in danger...from both prisoners and his fellow guards ?

Pernell Roberts (of 'Bonanza' and 'Trapper John' fame) Guest Stars as 'Hank' giving a powerful performance as the main adversary, with a strong supporting guest cast including Dorothy Lamour as 'Stella Fisher' and Steve Ihnat as 'Captain Oliver', plus Jay C. Flippen as 'Zack Whitten'.

A young Ben Murphy (later of 'Alias Smith And Jones' fame) co-stars as Dan Farrell's assistant Joseph Sample.
