All For The Institute
20 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

This last episode of season 3 and last for Dann Florek and Richard Brooks as cast members deals with a charitable institution for deaf people and the man who runs it. In a fit of rage he kills a woman, a deaf woman he regarded as a protege and something more. The something more led Leon Russom to commit murder though Jerry Orbach and Chris Noth don't get to him right away.

Russom is an interesting defendant, a man who thinks first, last and always of the charity he helped create and run. That is paramount in all his dealings with the criminal justice system.

George Grizzard is in this one as criminal defense attorney Arthur Gold and I have to say I never saw Steven Hill more in his let's make a deal mode than in this episode. Just like the mere mention of his name is supposed to intimidate Michael Moriarty. Didn't and does it happen.

But that final sitdown conference with Moriarty, Brooks, Grizzard and Russom reveals some interesting insights.
