Bridges does a really good job in this one....
5 October 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

When this episode begins, Mason (Lloyd Bridges) is at his mistress' apartment. As he looks out the window, he sees a man attacking a woman in the apartment next door. He sees her lying on the floor and she appears to be dead. So he calls the police...but doesn't leave his name when he leaves the report because he is naturally afraid of folks learning he's an old lecher. However, a bit later, an innocent guy is arrested and is going to go on trial! Can Mason live with himself if this innocent man is convicted? And, what he doesn't realize is that the real killer eventually realizes that Mason was a witness...and he's not about to give him a chance to talk...if this weasel would talk in the first place.

I really liked this episode. It isn't because the plot was so original but it was a really nice character study of a guy who really has some decency within him even though he's done some terrible things. Bridges is especially good.
