A throughly preposterous conclusion sinks this one without a trace. Indeed, both shootings were wildly implausible (to put it mildly). Anyway, the cast struggles gamely with the material, especially Basehart (who is very very good indeed).
Btw this was another one of the Catholic Episodes of SOSF. I've come across several, and they always seem to reflect a quite reverent attitude toward the material, an approach surprising to find in mainstream TV.
