Charity does not always begin at Home....
5 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Spoiler Alert !

A 'Robert Stack' Segment Episode

Howard Publications' 'CRIME' Magazine Editor Dan Farrell (Robert Stack) begins an investigation into charity fund raising...

But when his ongoing enquiries lead him into the direction of Walter Grayson (Dennis Weaver,of 'Gunsmoke', 'Gentle Ben' the film 'Duel', and of course 'McCloud' fame) suddenly strange things then start to occur in Farrell's own apartment... ...including a 'screeching' deafening tone put on his telephone, etc, all manner of unpleasant instances designed to unnerve the journalist and duly 'warn him off'...

Dan Farrell becomes aware that Grayson is already embittered concerning his brother Albert who has earlier been convicted of embezzling charity funds...

This episode is unusual in that for once we see Dan Farrell's home apartment and the 'CRIME' Magazine Editor himself comes under a very personal attack in a clear 'war of nerves'....

A young Ben Murphy (of later 'Alias Smith And Jones' fame) appears in his semi regular role as Dan Farrell's assistant Joseph Sample.

Dennis Weaver gives his normal professional performance...seemingly quite charming, yet with an underlying hint of real menace, and there is fine support from other Guest Stars including Larry Storch (as 'Norman Turley'), Diane Baker (as 'Elaine Brennan') and Karen Black (as 'Monica Garrison')

This is quite a gripping episode as Dan Farrell faces a very real attack on his nerves....

Suffice to say it's Dennis Weaver's character who ends up depicted on the cover of the next issue of 'CRIME' Magazine at the end of the episode.
