A good one with a slight twist at the end. I recorded this originally in 1981 on Realistic Cassette Recorder. Ahh the good old days . . .


Says it's the expression on his niece, it was the face of the young man who also was killed when his niece was killed.


CBSRMT-Brings back so many Memories. I was born in 1970 and My two older Brothers Used to take me camping . We would always listen. Thanks You all for the Great memories Over the years.

Not bad. Somewhat improbable ending and slightly wooden script. Standard of police work in the area seems quite low - seems odd forgetting to check who owned the murder weapons...


Great story. Always glad to see Fred Gwenn starring in anything!

Outstanding episode with a memorable, restrained performance by Fred Gwynne. The commentary by E.G. Marshall was thought-provoking and I find especially relevant for today. Heck, even the car event promotional ad halfway thru was worth the listen! So glad I stumbled by chance upon this late entry in the series and I will say it is now one of my many, many favorites.
