Angels Travel On Lonely Roads - Part 1
24 May 2014 | by jmarcheseSee all my reviews

We begin with Richard Kimble narrowly escaping a Linclon City, Nevada dragnet where the self righteous Lieutenant Tim Craig is hot on his trail. I say self righteous because he is so certain Kimble is guilty and the law is always right 100% of the time. Lieutenant Craig represents Mr. Cold Hard Reality. In this sense Angels Travel On Lonely Roads is fun to watch.

Kimble winds up on the road walking when he runs into Sister Veronica (played by the talented Eileen Heckart,) who is standing beside her ancient Model T Ford truck in complete frustration as the vehicle won't run. Kimble repairs the truck and they are on their way.

Divine Providence versus cold hard reality – are there such things as miracles or is everything just a sequence of outcomes based on free will ? You be the judge.

In Part 1 we also meet the talented Albert Salmi as Chuck Mathis, who as usual does an excellent job of playing the bully. Both he and Heckart are instrumental in making this a great episode. Their performances make us appreciate the fine art of acting.

In the early 1960's, "The Fugitive" was the first of several Quinn Martin production successes. Typically, actresses/actors such as Heckart and Salmi were paid between 3000 & 5000 dollars per episode for their services. Combined with outstanding screen writing and directing, we gain one of the all time great TV series.
