An old friend asks for help
17 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Howard Duff as Willie Dante is the owner of the nightclub Dante's Inferno. An old friend of his, Ramsey Collins asks for Dante's help in locating his granddaughter Marcy. Marcy is a wannabe artist and Dante tracks her down through an art dealer. Sadly, Marcy is both a very poor artist and a drunk. She also has a very different view of her stepfather than Dante does. She insists that Collins is only interested in the trust her mother left her and not in her welfare. When Collins is later found murdered, Marcy becomes the prime suspect. This is a sad tale of wasted talent; Marcy tells Dante something like "It's hard to properly execute a painting when you're staggering drunk." This episode has more character development than one usually sees in a half hour crime drama. Poignantly, the art deal observes "Human problems are varied, but methods of escape are few and familiar." Good episode.
