Going Against Type
3 October 2017 | by hackraytexSee all my reviews

I still remember this episode 54 years ago. If Rick Nelson wanted to break the mold and shatter his good guy image, he knocked it out of the part. He really got into the part and pulled it off. This was soon after the Manson Incident and I remember a lot of critics compared Nelson's character to Manson. This should have been the break out part for him to jump start his acting career and be taken seriously as a dramatic actor. He really showed his range here. I don't remember if he was considered for an Emmy but he should have. Good job and rest in peace, Mr. Nelson.
