This is well worth the investment just to see Falk doing what he does best, creating a character who has a history far beyond the spoken words. Robert Wise directs with an eye toward showing us people behaving in natural and very human ways. (Just watch Ruby Dee's short scene in the bus station with her grandson.) The Rod Serling teleplay shows its age with Serling's penchant for inserting a moral in each moment. And yet, it all goes down smoothly. No surprises, no major revelations. Just a reaffirmation of what we all know to be true.
