Scapegoat: and ah, Brenda Vaccaro........
8 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

All in all, a much better episode than the previous one. Michael Burns does a decent job as a troubled son with quite a past. Nan Martin is wonderful as his rather troubled mother.

Oh yes, and let's not forget the lovely Brenda Vaccaro. She has a rather smallish role, but she was always lovely to behold. I confess, when this episode was released in 1969, that was the time of my crush on Brenda. I was a high school kid, and every time she spoke.....I swooned.

Capable direction by FBI veteran Don Medford; story by Edward J. Lakso, the man responsible for so many excellent episodes of the tv series Combat.

And a young Harrison Ford does a superb job as the Scapegoat.
