Bank robbers put children in peril
16 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After bank robbers rob banks in coastal towns, they soon dump their cars, pose as fishermen and make their getaway in a boat where a cohort awaits them. This ploy is quickly sussed out after the Highway Patrol interviews a skin diver who had been attacked by the robbers. They lay a trap for the robbers but it is complicated by the fact that two children are playing on the beach where the robbers are waiting to get on the "getaway" boat. The best part of the show was how Chief Mathews interacted with the children to get them away from the beach. It was very well done. Another high point was seeing Stuart Whitman, an actor I always liked, play the skin diver. The beach location was also interesting - a long stretch of beach with only a couple of large houses in the background. Wonder what that beach looks like today.
