Efficient, yes but not exceptional

Well this episode remains interesting because we have here a young Robert Redford before he was known, a young Marty Balsam and also the already star at this time Ann Francis. And Bob Redford kidnapping Ann Francis is after all very unusual. The rough and accurate directing of Walter Grauman is also worth watching. Fast paced episode that grabs you from the beginning to the end. But if you consider closely the overall scheme, and I don't speak of Redford's presence, there is nothing really unusual here, but a very foreseeable topic without any great surprise nor twist ending of any kind. But, I repeat, a great directing and camera work. Yes it may not be the best of the series but for anyone who would not know this show, this would be the first episode to see.
