  • If we could read the twisted, frightened mind of Castro, this is what it might reveal.

    A young Peter Falk stars in this compelling episode of a Hispanic peasant who takes over the leadership of his country through a Communist revolt...sound familiar?
    Only moments after toasting his fellow commrades, he brings in the country's former dictator, despised and in handcuffs. The old general warns him, however, that he will soon turn into what he has overthrown: a tyrant. He also shows him the secret of how he discovered his hidden enemies - through a mirror that reflects would-be assassins
    All the action takes place within a single room, as well as the adjoining balcony. I found it very well written, and eerily familiar.
