127. Journey Into Night

David Mark Starret: Escaped Federal Prisoner - Interstate Transportation of Stolen Property.

Original air date: 14 December 1969

The escaped federal prisoner, David Starret, kidnaps his own son from the son’s foster parents in Albany, N.Y. The father and son travel to Texas where the good inspector finally captures him.

Once again, John Vernon plays a villain. Unlike most of his other performances, though, Mr. Vernon has some tender scenes with his son. The result is a rich, touching performance, and a fine episode.
