In the beginning of the story, Mrs. Barton becomes a widow. The pain of losing her husband is made worse when she is hassled by the adoption agency. After all, with her husband and his salary gone, she's having a tough time of it. So she goes to work...but still finds she cannot make a decent living for her and her daughter to be. When a 'benefactor' offers her a better job, she jumps at it...not realizing she'd be working for a clip joint. Soon, the bartender in this new job slips a customer a mickey...and Mrs. Barton sees this and quits. However, she is accused of working with the bartender to drug the man and rob him...anything to keep the boss in the clear. What's next and how will Bart Matthews (Reed Hadley) be able to help her?
This is a good episode--with a bit better than usual writing and acting. Having Lyle Talbot playing a sleazy lawyer helped make the show even better. Worth seeing.
