Storyline

After preventing a stranger from being shot outside of his hotel, widower Don Ashley realizes why a pair of thugs have been trailing him for days--the goons had the two similar-looking men confused. The man he saved, Gorden, had the misfortune of witnessing a mob hit and they want to silence the only man who saw what they did. With the deadly duo staking out the lobby, Don hides his face and races past the pair. Again mistaking Don for their actual prey, the two give chase. This should give Gorden the chance to contact the police and tell his story. Written by Jay Phelps <jaynashvil@aol.com>

Interesting episode

A depressed man because of his wife's death is tailed by mysterious guys and he wonders why...So does the audience. The atmosphere is very well made by the director Robert Mulligan; it seems like an authentic noir feature.

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS

It appears that one of his friends had to testify against the mob in a murder charge. And we find that the gangsters made a mistake, tailing our lead instead of his friend. Get what I mean?

A surprising story which deserves to be seen. Robert Middleton plays here a minor character.
