What's happened to Wolfe?!
4 October 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I have never seen an episode of "Kraft Suspense Theater" and I just stumbled upon this one while flipping around on YouTube. As I love anthology shows, I decided to give it a watch.

Jeffrey Hunter stars as Fred Girard--a guy who's come to see an old college chum named Wolfe. While he wasn't surprised to learn that his old friend was rich and powerful, he wasn't prepared for the reception he received. Instead of being welcomed, his staff do everything to drive Girard away. It's obvious they are hiding something and their reclusive boss wouldn't treat his old friend this way. In fact, they even make an attempt on his life! So what gives?! What's REALLY going on to his 'chum'?

This turned out to be a terrific show--so good I'd really love to see more episodes. Tense, very well acted and a really cool script.
