While posing as "Ben Horton," Kimble (David Janssen) is hired by Norma Sessions (Angie Dickinson) to look after her brother Leslie (Robert Duvall), a reclusive, embittered invalid. Someone getting through to the truculent Leslie, Kimble wins the man's trust and friendship. Meanwhile, Norma and her boyfriend Lars (John Ericson) hatch a scheme to murder Leslie for his insurance money--and pin the blame on Kimble. (Trivia alert: David Janssen and Angie Dickinson later costarred in the highly regarded 1977 TV movie A Sensitive Passionate Man, while Dickinson and Robert Duvall had both previously appeared in the 1963 Gregory Peck vehicle Captain Newman, M.D.).
