Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration. Viewers see Richard Kimble at work as a chauffeur] He used to be a Doctor of Medicine. He's a chauffeur now, driving his employer home to the small mid-western town where he was born. Home - for the man at the wheel, it is only a word, because there is no home for him. Not now, because he is Richard Kimble, Fugitive.

You can never go back...
18 April 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

George Forster (Richard Anderson) is a very rich and successful man. Now, many years after leaving his hometown, he's returning for a party being held in his honor. At his side is his friend and trusted employee, Tom (David Janssen).

Everything looks like it's going to be great for the party...at least initially. However, Dr. Kimble realizes that initial looks can be deceiving and there is actually a lot of hate and animosity about Forster. In fact, he even overhears a phone call where he hears one unknown person talking about killing Forster!! But Forster won't believe anyone hates him or wants to kill him...though evidence of this sure piles up as the show progresses!

There is one problem with this show that is no one's fault. It seems the guy on the phone who wants to kill Forster was a small- time actor in the 1960s but became VERY famous later...and it's not hard at all now to recognize the voice...so there's no suspense here. But apart from that, it's a great episode...one where human nature in all its ugliness comes out during the course of the film. And, what's interesting is that Forster apparently NEVER really hurt anyone and IS a nice guy...but folks' jealousy and hatred of their own lots in life come spilling out at him.

By the way, Anderson guest starred on the show 6 times. In the previous season, Anderson was MUCH more balding...and so you now realize that he often acted with a hair piece...which he wears in this one.
