Fascinating Cat-and-Mouse in the Desert
13 June 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Pete gets taken to the high desert by a hit-man in this first-rate episode. Things start off smoothly at Mothers with the delectable Edie crooning a tune. Seems though that underworld wants Pete out of the way and out of town at the same time. So there's a long two man death drive across the god-forsaken California flats.

Some great staging here. I don't know how they found that rickety old mine, but director Arnold lines the cat-and-mouse with what amounts to almost surreal camera shots. They're fascinating as heck. But then the director is Jack Arnold who shot some of the best 50's sc-fi in the same desert—It Came From Outer Space (1953), Tarantula (1955). So he knows what he's doing. And get a load of Dragnet favorite Ralph Moody and wife who run a filling station from heck. Anyhow, in my book, this may not be the most urbane entry of the series, but it is one of the most suspenseful and eye-catching.
