Familiar, but Well Done
19 January 2011 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

The story is a familiar version of the star-crossed criminal (Talman) being reformed by a sweet-natured girl (Wright), who unfortunately is also deaf. It's not surprising that the story and direction are from the great Ida Lupino who specialized in such parts, High Sierra (1941), Deep Valley (1947), for example. Unlike Lupino, however, Wright is more sweet than soulful. Episode is also unusual for giving villainous Talman a rare sympathetic role, which he does well. Largely wasted, however, is the legendary Lorre, in what amounts to a secondary part. The one scene of the rotund Lorre slumped in a chair, wordlessly menacing Wright is a memorable one since he resembles nothing less than a sinister frog. On the whole, the story may be a familiar one, but is also very well done.
