Steve Forrest plays a real jerk in this one!
17 April 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Richard Kimble goes to a broken down little zoo looking for work. The boss (Forrest) hires him but it's obvious that the place is heading towards bankruptcy. But soon the guy realizes that he might be able to make a fortune...as he realizes that his new employee is the famous murderer! But instead of calling the police, he contacts a sleazy newspaper man and waits for him and his photographers to arrive so that he can make the most of Kimble's arrest! In the meantime, he strings Kimble along and pretends to be his benefactor AND he manipulates the police...to keep them looking in all the wrong places until he's ready to spring his trap.

The biggest weakness about this one is how Kimble ultimately escapes. The other man's reasoning for helping seemed tenuous to say the least! Still, it is entertaining and worth seeing...as are all the episodes of "The Fugitive".
