Natural Born killers....?

Spoiler Alert !

A 'Robert Stack' Segment Episode.

An episode No doubt influenced by the real life Charlie Starkweather 'spree killers' case in Lincoln, Nebraska in the late fifties, this sixties fictional episode puts a differing slant on such a case....

'Crime' Magazine's Editor Dan Farrell (Robert Stack) becomes involved in the pursuit of Bobby Currier (Brandon De Wilde) & his young girlfriend - who is the Sheriff's terrified daughter - who embark on a 'spree killing' of complete strangers apparently at random...

With The embittered local Sheriff A.G.Ward (Steve Forrest), the girl's father, duly determined to bring Currier in...Dead or possibly even alive !

During this memorable episode we learn something of why Bobby Currier is now so 'alienated' from society...

Dan Farrell is later kidnapped by Currier, but then attempts to get Bobby Currier's story first hand...before he decides to add Farrell to his list of victims...

Fine supporting performances from both Anne Baxter as Bobby's mother Betty-Jean Currier, and Julie Harris as Verna Ward.

A chilling and all too familiar tale....this storyline goes a bit deeper into such killer's possible motives, and examines the 'Respectable Society members' who might themselves really be Bobby Currier's true accomplices in his killing spree...(?)

Series Note: Gene Barry makes one brief cameo appearance 'as Glenn Howard' having a telephone conversation with Dan Farrell.
