78. The Homecoming
Dr. John Lloyd Streyer: Fugitive - Espionage.
Original air date: 11 February 1968
Repeated 16 June 1968
A scientist who defected from an Iron Curtain country returns to New York in secret and Assistant Director Arthur Ward personally handles the case. The assistant director had handled the case 15 years prior.
This story becomes a tale of a disillusioned scientist who wants to just get home. His wife and son had drowned the previous summer, and the scientist is trying to reacquaint himself with loved ones.
- Phillip Abbott takes center stage here, and is interesting to watch. For once, his character is not sitting behind a desk.
- The 1957 yellow/white Ranchero in the center of city/traffic circle scene. It is shown three times in the same scene: Parked (illegally) against traffic, driving around the traffic circle and then parked (legally) in the background.
