A solid if not exceptional episode
26 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A young Puerto Rican on his first night in the city meets a woman at a dance hall and asks her to dance; she refuses because she is already married but suggests he asks her cousin who is waiting downstairs. He asks this second woman but she says she can't because she's getting married in the morning. The young man is soon thereafter arrested for assault and robbery and is identified by the woman victim who subsequently dies. He insists that he was with the second young woman at the time the crime was committed and knows this because the church bells sounded at midnight. The first woman denies there ever was a second woman. The story has an interesting twist at the end if not entirely unexpected. There were a couple of other interesting bits in this episode - one Garland tries to convince the first young woman that a wife beater will not change his ways, all to no avail of course, and secondly the brief glimpse we get about Puerto Rican immigrants.
