the sensitivity of performance by Dean Stockwell
12 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dean Stockwell brings great sensitivity and acting ability to the role of Charlie Blake.

This is one of the best episodes in Season Three and it the one that I remembered clear back from the 1970's when I watched these on TV when they were new. Dean Stockwell as Charlie Blake is casting and names that I've never forgotten.

Viewers should take a close look at Blake, with his 19th-century hair- do and his particular facial expressions which make his character come alive.

Also, look closely at his psychiatrist and note that many sessions held in his office were taped, including the obscene phone call which is played from a tape to the wife of the psychiatrist.

It's very heart-warming at the end of the episode to see that Blake's rehabilitation is quite complete and that he is leading a healthy and meaningful life.
