  • Martin Landau as the Death row Prisoner

    10
    This particular Ep was unique. It was cause of Martin Landau stellar performance in it. His role was to act out as a death row inmate. To make Victor Duchell believe he was actually in a real prison and was to be executed right after Landau character if he didnt provide information that the Commissioner wanted. Mr. Landau was so convincing and dramatic in his performance. Ive never seen such a brilliant performance from anyone since. A Best Actor Award that should have been giving to him for this.....moreless
