Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble riding in a car after thumbing a ride] For a Fugitive, the offer of help - some simple, decent act of kindness - must be rejected. There are no relationships of any duration for him. Life consists of fleeting contacts.

11/1/66 "Wine is a Traitor"
29 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Kimble is back in California in the middle of grape picker's strike where the son of a major farm owner has taken matters into his own hands and killed one of the leaders. Kimble witnesses it but flees before the cops come because he doesn't want to be recognized. The grape pickers think he did it, too at first. He has to win them over and avoid the police, not for his usual reasons but because they are essentially in the employ of the father.

The father is played by the always excellent James Gregory. The son is played by Roy Thinnes who would become the star of Quinn Martin's next series about a wandering hero: The Invaders."

This is not Kimble's first encounter with Mexican agricultural workers: there is Episode 7, "Smoke Screen" where he is one of them but they are suspicious because they think he's an undercover immigration agent and Episode 59, "The Old Man Picked a Lemon", where he has to take sides between the workers and a sadistic new farm owner.
