Incredibly tense!
27 September 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Madge (Maria Riva) is a woman with a checkered past. At one time, she was the girlfriend of a gangster. She also agreed to provide him with an alibi so he could beat a murder rap. However, over time, she's a changed woman. Now she has a decent man who wants to marry her and she wants to put this life behind her. Unfortunately, the episode begins with the ex-boyfriend's mobster friends kidnapping her and bringing her to him. It seems he's feeling lonely and wants her back--but she wants no part of him or lying for him in court. So, he plans on killing her. Fortunately, she is able to escape but it's very, very late at night and there's no one around to help her. In desperation, she jumps onto a late night bus. However, the killer and his posse are following her...and it looks pretty bad for her.

This is an incredibly tense half hour. While Riva is not a particularly famous actress, she more than holds her own here and the show is a nice example of TV film noir. Well worth seeing--and with some nice redirection that will surprise the viewer now and then.
