Adler Showcase
15 July 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

The 60-minutes is mainly a Luther Adler showcase. He's in about every scene. As an ex- gangster, Wender, he runs a gamut of emotions from threatening tough guy to sobbing repentant. Just released from prison to his hometown of Chicago, he hooks up with cabbie Tod who's sympathetic to the aging man's now foundering condition. On other hand, Buzz can't overlook the tough guy's brutal background. Thus, buddies Tod an Buzz are at odds; at the same time, Wender tries to track down someone from the past now trying to kill him. As Chicago cabbies, Buzz and Tod are mainly along for the ride.

The episode's really more a character study than anything else. There's not much plot nor suspense; it's more like a narrative of Wender struggling to deal with his brutal past. Nonetheless, the hour is a chance not only to catch noir icon Adler, but also a couple of old pro's from the 30's, viz. Farrell and McHugh, both of whom helped rough up many a Warner Bros. gangster flick. Too bad we don't see more of Chicago than the one skyline scene. Thus there's little of the series trademark travelogue. All in all, the 60-minutes is mainly for fans of Adler, along with a somewhat interesting storyline and an appropriate, surprise ending.
