Myrna Fahey and Cloris Leachman
12 October 2008 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

After two stellar thrillers from producer William Frye, Fletcher Markle returned for this routine crime entry featuring Myrna Fahey as a young newlywed (the "Girl with a Secret") who discovers that her handsome husband (Rhodes Reason, lookalike brother of Rex) is a secret agent endangered by ringleader Victor Buono's thugs. Like many other THRILLERs, this episode is enlivened by a cast of past and future stars such as Buono, in a disappointingly brief performance, later appearing in "God Grante That She Lye Still." Also appearing are 34-year-old Cloris Leachman, only a few years removed from her beauty pageant days, as a sarcastic member of the husband's family, and Hollywood veteran Ellen Corby, whose greatest fame would be found on THE WALTONS, in a suitable role as a snooping housekeeper who pays the ultimate price for her failure to keep any secrets (she played Victor Buono's mother in 1963's "The Strangler"). Superior to producer Markle's next and final episode, "Man in the Middle." Myrna Fahey (another beauty contestant who died of cancer in 1973) and Harry Ellerbe are reunited just a few months removed from "House of Usher," while Rex Holman, carving out a career playing crazies like the one here, tries unsuccessfully to run our hero off the road, smiling all the while (his character name is Blucher, which was Cloris Leachman's name in "Young Frankenstein"!).
