A Victim of Blind Justice Times 2

Corner Of Hell introduces us to Moonshiner land. Local police never invade this area of illegal activity because the cost benefit of such action is highly negative.

R.G Armstrong plays a strong role as Tully, the Moonshiner patriarch while Sharon Farrell (Elvie) and Bruce Dern (Cody) put on excellent performances as his children.

While the sheriff (played by Dabs Greer who appeared in several minor Fugitive TV series roles including episodes 1 & 118) avoids Moonshiner country like the plague, our ever persistent Lieutenant Gerard (played by Barry Morse) has other ideas.

Kimble heads into Moonshiner country to avoid capture and Gerard decides to follow. After proving himself in front of our Moonshiner clan, Kimble gains respect in Armstrong's eyes. Gerard descends into deep trouble and is faced with the Shiner's judgment.

Corner Of Hell is special in that it's perhaps the only Fugitive episode in which Lieutenant Gerard is forced into and realistically feels what it's like to be in Kimble's shoes.

I first saw Corner of Hell in the 1967-1968 wave of reruns. All of these years and I always remembered the episode in which Tully proclaimed his famous catch phrase - "Go Fetch Em'"
