[Epilog Closing Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble, suitcase in hand, walking along a country road]
Someday - someday Richard Kimble will be settled. When he can take his own name again. When he finds the man who killed his wife. Until then, he must be what he is now - a Fugitive.

This one's a real dud. It's as if Tennessee Williams, (in his cups) decided to write an episode of a TV series. The result falls completely flat. Shirley Knight is returning home from being in a mental institution after being attacked by dogs. She finds he mother is dead and her father, (Richard Carleson), has remarried to a gold- digger played by Gloria Graham, (with the same accent she used as Ado Annie in "Oklahoma"). Shirley doesn't like Gloria and Gloria wants only one woman in the household. Gloria plots to drive Shirley nuts, even arranging for her to hear dog noises at night and hearing the cry of a small boy, (one had been killed in the attack). The place is a peanut farm and Kimble has somehow gotten a job as a "research technician" and somehow is living in the house with the others. He's sympathetic to Shirley so Gloria tries to get rid of him by telling the local Sheriff, who has a crush on Shirley, that Kimble has his eyes on her.
I recently saw Gloria Grahame in her glory period of the early 50's, when she won an Oscar for "The Bad and the Beautiful" and played opposite Humphrey Bogart in "In a Lonely Place". She's so good in that, it's disappointing to see her giving such an arch performance in this claptrap. I also have a friend who said he's seen an episode of The Fugitive on MeTV and, boy was that ever a lousy show! This might have been the one he saw.
