Eddie Albert ("Bide Turley") stars in this "whodunnit" (at least for the first half of the story, then we find out) and then the rest of the folks have to deal with the bank robber/killer once he shows his face.
Mona Freeman .John Ericson and Deforest Kelly are three other "name actors" who appear in here. Freeman really caught my eye as "Sandy Neal." She was wholesomely beautiful woman who had a lot of intelligence behind those eyes, or so it appeared to me. I really wasn't familiar with her but some research here on IMDb reveals that Photoplay magazine put Mona on their "12 Most Beautiful Actresses" list in 1952. She joined Rita Hayworth, Deborah Kerr, Ava Gardner, Marlene Dietrich, Ann Blyth, Linda Darnell, Elizabeth Taylor, Joan Crawford, Arlene Dahl, Susan Hayward and Loretta Young. Not bad company! Mona is still alive and, hopefully, will turn 84 years old next month.
The star, however, of this "Zane Grey Theater" episode is definitely Albert, who is really good in here. Just the looks on his face, the facial inflections and naturalness of delivery all are fun to watch. I didn't realize he was this great an actor!
This turned out to be an excellent episode, start-to-finish with good characters and excellent dialog.
