A very good noir...

At last a very good crime episode from this TV show that was rather flat all long the other features. This could easily have been a film, a real one, a classic. Directed by Robert Mulligan, it describes the release from prison of a man - Robert Keith jr, Brian Keith - who is forced to do a last job for his former associates. A desperate character who tries to escape from his past. For him, it is hopeless, as you can imagine. A true and authentic little surprise. OK, it may be a cliché, with the lead supported by his gal, and who eventually fails in his attempts to make it, but I love that.

I repeat, it's a very good tale. I did not expect this.
