  • Mr. Bullivant guarantees to get escaping criminals out of the country - but he doesn't say in what form...

    A very brief episode in which a gangster who has murdered several people (including a child) during a $250,000 bank robbery tries to get out of the country with the help of a slightly mysterious exporter. Old Mr. Bullivant seems a nice old guy, proud of his 47 years of providing a service to the underworld; we fear that the twitchy, nasty hoodlum (somewhat over-acted by Bobby Darin) might kill him before fleeing to South America. But Bullivant's a businessman - and tougher than he seems. Jack Albertson's usual air of affable, avuncular solicitude makes the closing moments of this predictable but quite satisfying tale all the more effective.
