  • An amazing tour-de-force for Buddy Ebson!

    This is one of the strongest, most powerful episodes in the series. In its quiet and delicate way the issue of morality and right and wrong is addressed in such a profound way that I was left haunted by the character of the hobo. The acting of Buddy Ebsen is so superb that all the actors are lifted up a notch or two in there portrayals (and that is saying a great deal as the acting in this show is almost always so professional). A not-to-be missed episode.
