A very interesting episode
31 December 2012 | by thxdaveSee all my reviews

I just finished watching this episode for the first time. What an amazing collection of acting's elite in one episode. Watching Herschel Bernardi act opposite Burgess Meredith was such a treat. I grew up hearing Bernardi's voice used SO often in commercial voice-overs. I've been tracking down the actual filming locations for this series and for "Highway Patrol" and this episode was shot within a block or two of one spot. In fact, the building seen in the background of the murder scene is the apartment building where Adam Flint's beautiful girlfriend Libby (Nancy Malone) lived (in the series). Fifty years didn't change the scene of Meredith's death much at all. Even the storm water drain and the crack in the curbstone where he drew his dying breath is still there (thank you Google Earth). Also, I was shocked to see Candace Hilligoss appear in one group shot. This was the same year that she made her starring appearance in "Carnival of Souls".
