Spoiler Alert !

A 'Tony Franciosa' Segment Episode.

In one of his last (and certainly his best script in the show's final third season) portrayals of charismatic yet determined 'People' Magazine Star Investigative Reporter 'Jeff Dillon' Tony Franciosa appears in a poignant episode for his character, who for once leaves sunny California and his job at Howard Publications and heads back to New York to visit his surviving family on vacation...

The story has a striking opening where Jeff Dillon looks out the plane's window which transforms into a portal showing his memories of his childhood in New York...

However on returning Dillon is then shocked to discover just how much has changed since those carefree days, almost entirely for the worst....as he discovers his own brother Angie (Guest Star Martin Balsam) is now a hopeless drug addict...and a puppet for the drug pushers...

At the end Dillon has an agonising decision to make...should he turn his own 'junkie' brother into the Police..?

The episode features a memorable Narration by Orson Welles.
