Starts off well but... And no Edward G. Robinson
31 January 2009 | by CatTalesSee all my reviews

Starts off well with Tony Franciosa and Susan Saint James interviewing and following a young successful businessman who keeps a certain emotional distance from Tony. To gain some insight on his subject, Tony chips away at the man's past, then the plot veers into an unrelated missing persons search. When the businessman offers a reward, greedy searchers arrive. Eventually the two plots are tied together, but the diverting of attention from main characters to minor plot-driven characters kills the tension in the drama. By the finale, you don't really care how or what was resolved. On a positive note, the acting is enjoyable as usual, and the episode is another time capsule of the past.

Note: Edward G. Robinson is NOT in this episode. His son Edward G. Robinson Jr. has 2 minuscule appearances as the businessman's bartender. In the end credits, most characters are only identified by first name but Junior gets a full "Carl Rodenski."
