A Milner Showcase
23 January 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Good mix of action, titillation, and pathos. It's not a road entry. Instead, the guys are in LA, mainly in a seedy part, where Tod's given a last request by his dying aunt (Straight)-- he's supposed to find his lost cousin Carol for her mom. This takes Tod and Buz to a number of tacky spots, certainly a long way from the usual Hollywood glamor spots.

Wheelchair-bound Briggs (DeKova) gets a semi-poetic soliloquy that works pretty well, while a grizzled Royal Dano gets a turn as a doctor, of all things. Also, the fine actress Beatrice Straight shows her acting chops in a moving death-bed scene. But, as reviewer cliometrician points out, it's really Milner's 60-minutes. He calibrates that final scene beautifully given temptations to over-do. I guess the gang brawls were intended to insert action, but they're pretty contrived. Anyway, juvenile delinquency was a popular theme at the time, while the monkey climb up the fence smacks of West Side Story, also 1961. Overall, it's a strong, atmospheric episode, especially for fans of the under-rated Martin Milner.
