Good vs. Evil and very good acting in a 1959-60 genre.
24 June 2006 | by rothberg1See all my reviews

The classic climactic scene between Nick and Mike Kellin (the killer) remains embedded in my memory as a wonderful contest between good and bad, with the bad guy (Kellin) appreciating Nick's cleverness, all while being gunned down. As an aside, I remember seeing Mike Kellin in a restaurant in Manhattan shortly after the episode aired. I went over to him and told him how much I enjoyed the show and his acting. He couldn't have been more gracious.

Also, what is interesting, in retrospect, Mike Connors reminded me of the early Sean Connery in Dr. No, and from Russia with Love.

I have located four episodes of Tightrope, and while they are not high quality, they are good enough to enjoy.

Let's get all these Tightrope episodes on DVD for purchase.
