Storyline

A wall separating the innocent from the guilty is perilously breached when ex-cons mistakenly steal radioactive cobalt, then abandon it. Thinking the cobalt container hides industrial diamonds, they open it in their front, an auto repair shop, endangering the neighborhood. As they lie low, before fleeing to Mexico, only the youngest of the trio is concerned about the neighbors, especially a female shopkeeper he cares for. Fear mounts, as the mechanic who pried open the Pandora's box, grows ill, and the FBI tracks the radioactivity. Written by David Stevens

Goofs

The 400-pound safe is about twice as tall than it is wide. When it is dropped on its face onto the crawler, the crawler wheels are smashed and makes the crawler and the safe immobile. When the forklift smashes into the office, scoops up the safe and withdraws from the office with the safe on the fork, the safe has been turned 90 degrees to fit comfortably onto the two fork prongs even though the two men still in the office could not possibly have shifted the safe 90 degrees.

James Gregory and Katharine Ross
3 April 2012 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

"The Dividing Wall" is reminiscent of the first season's "Diagnosis:Danger," this time centering on a daring payroll robbery committed by three ex-cons using their skills as mechanics to steal a safe full of money. What they don't know is, the safe also contains a cobalt isotope which could spread deadly radioactivity throughout the entire city if unleashed. The three thieves are played by James Gregory, Chris Robinson, and Norman Fell, while 23 year old Katharine Ross makes just her fourth TV appearance. Future "Count Yorga" director Bob Kelljan also plays one of his less frequent acting roles, 8 in all. Chris Robinson went on to star in the cult horror film "Stanley," in 1972, bravely working with dangerous rattlesnakes.
