    A familiar sort of story, with an unjustly-accused woman being saved from the gas chamber at the very last possible moment and suffering, it would seem, no very great degree of trauma as a result. This isn't too believable, but the implication that a great deal of corruption on several levels is what's sent her to the death-house (rather than a simple frame-up by a handful of baddies) is quite a strong one and the attendant suggestion that justice isn't something that the poor can expect, especially when there are rich opponents involved, is trenchantly made. The anti-capital-punishment attitude is never overtly stated, to the segment's advantage. The big plot- twist is easy to guess, but the actors are good, with the usually so-sweet Martha Hyer enjoying herself as a truly venomous dragon-lady type.moreless
