    As usual in this series the play has different levels of drama. There's the one of a man trying to realize the American dream by doing something major in his field of expertise. There's also a study of what happens when a man gives in to his dark side. A domino effect results and the man who was once able to keep his humanity functioning suddenly loses control and becomes corrupt. All the players including the ubiquitous John Larch in the title role and his wife Madeleine Sherwood ably carry forth in this powerful drama. Gretchen Wyler as a bar proprietress and Percy Rodriguez as Larch's work companion who has a terminally ill young son are also standouts. This is a memorable drama, one of the best in the series.moreless
