Subpar for Bronson but surprise co-star
4 September 2014 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

Reissued for Bronson fans in 2009 by Johnny Legend on a DVD compilation called The Breakout Years, this forgotten bit of TV trivia is poorly produced but has a campy connection for modern audiences.

Bronson is teamed with none other than the legendary TV producer (of the future) Aaron Spelling, who looks exactly the same only so young here he resembles Huntz Hall in his Bowery Boys days. He & Bronson (as Ollie) are convicts on the run doing basically OF MICE AND MEN riffs, with Bronson oddly in the George role (with dim-witted Spelling's character repeatedly calling out "Ollie" at him).

The alternate title listed on the DVD for this episode is The Case of the Desperate Men, and it is identified under this lame series retitle of "Federal Men". The stilted production values sink it, and Bronson has little chance to emote, but watching Spelling kowtow to him is fairly priceless. Maybe Legend should send a copy to Tori.
