Connors, Driscoll Add Spark To Story
18 January 2010 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Mike Connors and Bobby Driscoll guest-star as brothers, one of them a bad guy through-and-through and the other a rough kid but one with principles. Connors plays the thug older brother "Pete Wikowlski." A decade later, Connors became a big star in the TV hit show "Mannix." Meanwhile, Driscoll, a child acting star a decade earlier, was now 20 years old at this time. He played younger brother "Steve Wikowlski." Driscoll, one of the great natural child actors of his day, did have the rosy future Connors had ahead of him. Bobby died broke, a homeless man, his body found in an abandoned New York City tenement in 1968.

"Pete Wikowski" has escaped from prison, shot and killed a man, and is on the loose somewhere in Chicago's Lincoln Park. "Steve" is helping him, but is not the killer his brother seems to be. "Det. Ballinger" has to find the older brother before he kills more.

This is a suspenseful episode and a good one and much of that is attributed to the great acting and voice of the series star, Lee Marvin.

I only wish the transfer was better. The night scenes in Lincoln Park in the climactic final five minutes were not easy to view. I'm thankful Timeless Video has offered all of these M Squad shows for purchase on DVD but it's a shame they didn't do any work on the prints. The contrast in some of these episodes, like this one, is very poor.
