Studio One (1948–1958): Season 5, Episode 8 - Plan for Escape - full transcript

A crooked club owner's wife witnesses his murder, and has to flee from gangsters.

ANNOUNCER: Westinghouse
Studio One.

Westinghouse, the name that
means sureness, whether it's

on vacuum cleaners
for America's homes

or electric trolley
coaches for our cities.

Whether it's a product for
your home or your business

or your farm or
your factory, you

can be sure if
it's Westinghouse.



Where do you think you're going?

-Out, that's where.

-No, you're not.

Your loving husband
doesn't want you to go out,

so you're not going out.

-Oh, yes I am.

It's like being
cooped up in a jail.

Can't go any place unless some
guy with a gun tails along.

Like you, you big brave man.

-Sure, you get taken
care of real careful.

You're the boss's wife.

He wants you taken care or.

-Well, I'm going out to
see some old friends.

-You will go out when
the boss tells me.

Now, tomorrow we'll go out
and buy some more things

all up and down Madison Avenue.

You can spend all you want.

-I don't want any more clothes!

I want to see some
people I know,

not just a bunch of guys who
talk in corners all the time.

-Look, you married Dave
to get things, didn't you?

Well, you've got things.

Now, shut up.

Let me listen to music.

-I won't.

I'm sick of being treated
like a poodle dog on a leash.

You're scared.

And my big, rich, successful
husband's scared, too.

Scared I might tell something.

And I will, unless
I can act human.

Take your hands off
me or I'll tell Dave.


What'll you tell him?

-I'll tell him you made passes.

That'll make him feel real good.

-Hello, Timashin.

-Nice of you to pay me a visit.


Who's visiting?

-It's my club.

I bought up control
of the Melody.

Expanding my assets.

-Listen, we better
get out of the light.

I'm expecting Dave Weber.

Honey's inside.

-Well, well.

Slumming, eh?

Well, this isn't exactly
a conference room.

Have [INAUDIBLE] decided yet?

-Dave Weber's a tough
man to fool with.

-It's business.

I'm a growing asset.

You know the set up of all
Dave Weber's enterprises.

You have a filing cabinet.

I'm simply buying
the key, that's all.

I've got to know how
and where to cut in.

-What do you think I do, go
around making double crosses?

-You can run the business.

Bookie joints.

The whole works.

You can run them.

Under me, of course.

-You'll have to give
me a little more time.

-Do I look like a patient man?

-Couple of weeks
more won't kill you.

-Do you have a conscience?

Do you have a sense of
loyalty for Dave Weber?

He's coming here, eh?

Dave Weber?


-And, uh, Honey, she
could be a widow.

That's the way I
run my business.

Give a chance to everybody.

Well, let me know when
Dave Weber gets here, huh?

I'll be inside.



-(SINGING) I only saw him
once as he came passing by.

But I know that I will
love him til the day I die.

I don't know where he comes
from, and I blush with shame.

For I must confess that I
don't even know his name.

There was something in his
smile when he looked at me

and then there was
something in my heart

that knew he'd
come my way again.

I only saw him once
as he was passing by.

But I know that I will
love him til the day I die.


What are you doing here?

-Hello, baby.


Honey Weber.

-Hello, Mary.

-Well, we're honored.

Uptown comes downtown.

The penthouse comes
visiting the cellar.

Let's see, uh, it's been
two months, hasn't it?

-Dave never lets me
go anyplace alone.


How'd you get down here, then?

-I walked out, that's how.

I have to talk to somebody.

-And there's nothing
like an old friend, huh?

Somebody you shared a
dressing room with once,

and, uh, even a furnished room.

-He never lets me go anyplace
unless that Skeets comes along.

It's like a prison.

A million dollar prison
with chandeliers.

-Well, isn't that
just what you wanted?

Two months ago, all
that looked real

good to a pony in
the chorus line.

-But I never thought that--

-Mm, yeah.

Stage managers.


They don't make any money.


I'm going to have lots of
money and be real important.

Great speech.

I remember it well, Honey.

-Mary, I'm scared.

He never lets me go out unless
with that Skeets or him.

And when we do go
nice places, places

like-- like on Park
Avenue, there's

always that same bunch around.

They never say anything unless
they make sure I can't hear.

Oh, I had to come down
here and talk to somebody.

-Look, Honey, I'm no tonic.

If it's entertainment you
want, go to the movies.

-Oh, Mary.

Mary, I get so blue sometimes.

-You made your
bed, now lie in it.

Look, I never told you
to marry Dave Weber.

But what can you do?

The kindergarten always
hopes for the candy

store, no matter
who's running it.

-I'm not a kid.

-Well, you got caught by candy.

Rock candy.

You're all sticky
fingers anyway.

I know ya, Honey.

I didn't share tooth powder
and cold creme with you

for two years for nothing.

You met him, you
married him, and that

was the end of our friendship.

Now unzip me.

-But Dave was different, Mary.

He was wonderful to me.

He didn't act like--
like he does now.

-What did you expect?

Oh, Honey, you didn't
come off a farm, remember?

You came out of a nightclub.

One that he owns.

-Well, yes, but--

-Look, isn't
anything real to ya?

Is it all Christmas
paper wrapping?

Honey, for the love of Pete.

There comes a time
to stop being a kid.

Stop living off of
the top of things.

You know, Honey,
other people are

real out to get
what they're after.

They're not here just to help
keep you from being bored.

-But I don't ask him
to do that, Mary.

I'm not bored.

I'm scared.

I want to get out.

-You know what you want, huh?


-Look, Honey, I'm older than
you are and I-- well, I like ya.

You were good for laughs.

You never did a mean
or a dirty thing

deliberately in your whole life.

But you don't know anything
about yourself, Honey.

You grab at the shiny
things that excite you.

You-- aw, you're a greedy kid
with the face of an angel.

-I told you to stop calling me--

-But Honey, those things
that-- that you grab at,

they only last
for a little time,

like a lollipop or
an ice cream cone.

See, you've got
to have something

to live with all the time.

And it's got to be
inside yourself.

Good looks.

What happens when the
wrinkles come, huh?

-Don't talk about that.

I don't want to think
about getting old.

-Well, well.

So you have thought
about something, eh?

Getting old.


See, that proves
you've got nothing

inside to live
with all the time.

-I don't know why I came
down here in the first place.

You just make me
keep on feeling blue.

-You mean about
little emptier, Honey.

And a little more
scared because of it.


Mary, let's talk a little
bit about-- about old times.

-Aw, sure Honey.


-She's in Mary
Warren's dressing room.

How come Honey came
down here to this place?

Sure it wasn't your idea?


It's Timashin's place now.

Bought it up last week.

-What's that got to do
with this being my idea?

-Well, I hear things.

-Well, what kind of things?

You asked me to keep
a check on Honey.

-Timashin's been
making propositions.


-Just a rumor, kid.

That's all.

Just a rumor.

-Well, you mean
propositions to me?

Well, what's the
matter with you, Dave?

You've done OK by me.

Could I get it
better with Timashin?

-I don't know.

What do you think?

-Well, it's crazy,
that's what I think.

Listen, tell me the guy that's
been saying this about me.

Tell me and I'll beat the liar.

-I don't want an act.

Beat it.

-OK, you're the boss.



HONEY: Remember the
dance [INAUDIBLE]?

MARY: Yeah.

Don't you believe in knocking?

-And be the first
man that had to?

Come on, Honey.
We're going home.

-But we're having a good time.

Come on.

It smells in here.

-I was just noticing
that myself.

-From your singing.

-Yeah, a rotten tune
called Hale Dave Weber.

-Dave, don't!

-Come on.

Get out.

-Let me go!

Let me go!

-Have to give it to you?

Come down to these
cheap sawdust joints?


DAVE WEBER: Get out!

Who is it?


Is that you, Skeets?




-It's Honey.

She knows it's me!

-We'll get her later.

Get out of this alley!


He's dead!


-Yeah, in the alley.

What am I going to do?
I can't go to the--

-Honey, get control of yourself.
-They'll come after me!

They'll come--

-Look, now, this is the first
place they're going to come to.

-Get away.
I've got to have money.

-You've got to get out of here.

-Mary, what am I going to do?
-Hide out here.

Now, get.


Go on.

-Where's Honey?

-For Dave.

I can't get at him, so
you're the next best.

-I want to know where Honey is.
-You ought to be shot.

The whole lot of you, in
the gutter or the alley.

The whole lot of you.

-For the last time,
where's Honey?

-She's in my trunk.

-Don't get funny.

-No, no, I shouldn't get funny.

The little boys who hide in
the shadows have come out.

-I said don't get funny.

-Leave me alone.

I'm tired.

I'm worn out.

Now get out of here!

-Listen to me.

Listen to me good.

She's gonna try to
get in touch with you.

When she does, I
want to know it.

Don't talk to the police.

You understand?

Now, don't forget
what I'm telling you.

You and I will talk again.


-Sorry, miss, but you
can't stay out here.

-Well, sir, I just
want to be [INAUDIBLE].

I'm all right.

-The company's got rules, miss.

It's very dangerous out here.

-Please, sir.

I'll go right in.

What was that?

-Air brakes.

We're coming to a
one minute stop.

I'll be back after we pull out.


SKEETS: Hello, Honey.

-What do you want?

-I want to be your friend.

-I won't tell.

I swear, I won't tell.

That's why I ran away.

I didn't want to tell.

-About Timashin?

Yeah, he wants to get to you.

Skeets'll help him.

You understand?

Come with me, baby.

I'll buy you anything you want.

Take you anyplace
you want to go.

You're stuck, [INAUDIBLE].

Quit acting so dumb.

-I never did anything
to ya, Skeets.

I never did anything to anybody.

What's going to happen to me?

-Talk like a kid and grow up.

I'll show you how
to grow up, my way.

I like a woman to be
smart and know the angles.

-I don't want to [INAUDIBLE].

I don't want to.

ANNOUNCER: Now that you've seen
part one of "Plan for Escape,"

let's turn to our Westinghouse
program and Betty Furness.

143 times faster.


It's so amazing
that I could hardly

believe it until
I saw it myself.

In this new 1953
Westinghouse dryer,

we just dried this winter coat.

It's made of 100% orlon, and
it's lined with orlon too.

Now, the label said drip dry.

But if we drip
this coat dry, why

it would have taken two full
days to get it really dry.

But the Westinghouse
dryer dried it

completely in just 20 minutes.

That's right, just 20 minutes.

That's 143 times faster
than drip drying.

And as for the shape
it's in, well, this coat

has actually been
washed in the laundromat

and dried in the dryer
five different times.

Now, this happens to be a size
10, which is exactly my size,

and look.

As you can see, there is
the sign of shrinkage.

It fits just exactly
the way it ought to.

And the fabric is even softer
and fluffier than ever.

It's really the most
perfect drying job

that you've ever seen.

In fact, it's so amazing that
even the makers of the coat

wouldn't believe it until
Westinghouse proved it to them.

And here's the reason.

It's the exclusive
three-way dry dial

that Westinghouse
developed for the drying

of these smart new
miracle fabrics-- as well

as all other fabrics--
just exactly the way

they should be dried.

You can set the dial at
dry for the complete drying

of cottons and linens and such.

Or set it here for the
just right dampness

that you need for things
that you want to iron.

And then these are all different
settings for the shorter drying

time and faster time that
you need for the new miracle

fabrics that's just right
and completely safe for them.

Now, your instruction
book right here

will tell you exactly where to
set the dial for each fabric.

But no matter what
clothes you're drying,

it's always a good
idea to take them out

as soon as the dryer's
job is finished.

And so Westinghouse
built a signal

into this brand new dryer.




Isn't that a
pleasant way to tell

you that your clothes are ready?

And remember, weather like this
will be on the way very soon.

Days when you just can't
hang your clothes outside.

But the Westinghouse drier dries
your clothes in any weather

and better than their dried
outside, even on a perfect day

in June.

So see this amazing
new 1953 Westinghouse

clothes drier at your dealer.

See the laundromat, too.

Together, they are
America's favorite twins.

And remember, you can be
sure if it's Westinghouse.

ANNOUNCER: We return
now to Westinghouse

Studio One and
"Plan for Escape."

-Come out of there.

Didn't you hear me?

I said, come out.

-Don't please.

I'll go back.

I'll do anything.

Just don't shoot me!


-Oh, I'll do anything.

Just please don't kill me.


-Don't kill me.

-What do you think I am?

I'm-- I'm only the
mail clerk here.

-Mail clerk?

-Say, you're no kid.

-You're just the mail clerk?

And-- and I thought--
I thought that--

-Look, what's the
matter with you?

You better come inside.

Sit down.

That better?

Say, how about a cup of coffee?

What were you doing out there?

I-- I got off the train.

-It's funny I didn't see
you until the train started.

Besides, we don't get
many passengers here.

Why'd you get off?



You know where you are?


-Winnicon, Ohio.

No [INAUDIBLE] congress
ever put us on the map.

No civil war battle
ever got fought here.

Never raised a
famous favorite son.

Never did anything
to make us stand out.

That's why it's a
nice place to live.

Well, I talk a lot, huh?


I didn't mean-- I
didn't say, but--

-My name's Alan Wall.

-I'm-- I'm--



Francis Weston.

This is a quiet town?

I mean, you can rest here?

-We don't do much
else but rest here.


-What was that?

-That's the 5th Avenue Express.

Say, you're pretty
jumpy, Miss Weston.

-Can-- Can I stay someplace?

-You could.


Where can I stay?

-Mrs. Bailey's, I suppose.

That's sort of a rooming house.

-How do I get there?

-Oh, you wouldn't be able
to find your way now.

I'll drive you over
when I'm off duty.

Around 7 o'clock.

Say, Miss Weston.

You mind if I ask you
something personal?


-How old are you?

-I'm 21.

And don't try to call me a kid.

-You know, it's a funny thing
how people fight against being

called a kid, as though there
were something wrong in it.

You know, it's only
because you show

your feelings all the time.

What's inside you.

That's being a kid.

You know, that means
that growing up

is nothing but hiding
everything from people.

I hope you like strong coffee.


There's lots of
ways of growing up.

Lots of different ways.

You're a city girl, aren't you?

Well, you hang around here,
you'll see what I mean.

It's a different kind of a life.

-Mr. Wall, I--

-The name's Alan.

-I didn't mean-- Alan.

Well, if-- if I got
mad, I-- I'm sorry.

-Well, that's better.

In that case, welcome to the
quietest little town on Earth.

Winnicon, Ohio.

-I'm sure you'll be
comfortable here, Miss Weston.

It's cheerful, isn't it?

And you won't have
to climb any stairs,

if you're just out
of the hospital.


-Oh, there.

All I have to do is open my
mouth and all the wrong things

come out.

Alan didn't want me to mention
it about your being sick.

-That's all right.

-You come along and
have your breakfast.

-Oh, coffee.

That's all I want.

-Oh, girl just out of the
hospital and only coffee.

You're gonna have bacon and eggs
and tell me all about yourself.


Oh, excuse me.



Oh, yes.



Well, that'll be just fine.



That was Dr. Wall.

He's on his way over.


-Dr. Wall.

Oh, I see.

No, no.

Not Alan Wall.

Alan's uncle.

He's the doctor here.


-I'm sure I raised that blind.

-Oh, but I--

-Pretty day, isn't it?

Real pretty kind of day.

You come along and--
and have your breakfast.

I'll have it ready in a minute.

You go on in the parlor
and turn on the radio.

Music and a pretty day,
they kind of go together.


MRS. BAILEY: You like music?

-Uh huh.

-Well, what do you know?

You're good.

You're very good.



DR. WALL: Good
morning, Mrs. Bailey.

good morning, but you

can go back home now, Doctor.

The patient's been dancing.

M-- oh, Miss Weston.

This is Dr. Wall.


Good morning.

-It was just the music.

I couldn't help it.

-Alan, I thought you said
the young lady was tense.


-Well, she was.



-Is it true about the dancing?

-It was just the music.

It-- it made me feel different.

-Well, you don't look the
picture of hypertension.

Since I'm here, though,
how about a check up?

-Well, I won't do it again.

-If Dr. Wall says it's all
right, you most certainly will.

-Mrs. Bailey means
there's no law against it.

-Shall we have the check up now?

-All right.

-Maybe after, you'd--
you'd like to take a ride?

I'll wait for you
in the kitchen.

-Now, if you're ready.

-Nobody disappears just
like that, into thin air.

-All right, so it's the
first time in history.

But she's gone, just like that.

I ought to know.

I looked.


In a gin mill?
-What's the matter with you?

You're not the only
person that doesn't like

people disappearing
into thin air.

I don't like it, either.

-Where'd you go?

-Oh, every town along the way.

Every place the train
made a slow down for mail.

I covered the whole line.

A traveling salesman
doesn't know it better.

-Did you talk?


You know, they've
got station masters.

-I talked.

I asked.

Nobody saw a girl get off
a train from Abby Junction

to Winnicon, period.

-Rotten, crazy way
to run a business.

Leaving your biggest
liability lying

around for anyone to pick up?

-Look, she ran, didn't she?

She said she wouldn't
tell the cops.

Now, maybe it's just as well.

Why don't you relax?

She's not going to talk.

She's scared.

-Everybody stops
being scared sometime.

How do I know what that
Honey's going to do?

Even the dumb learn
ways to speak.

The blind wake up some
morning and they can see.

What is this advice
you're giving me?

Pearls of wisdom?

-Well, what else do
you want me to do?

-I want to know where Honey
is, and you're stalling me.


-You've got a yen for her.

-Wait a minute.

It was your idea to
get rid of Dave Weber.

Not mine.

-Yes, it was.

But I didn't know that she
was going to witness it.

Now, get this through your head.

I'm not paving your way to
that doll with my dead body,

you understand?

You stall with me, and
you'll get it, too.

-All right.

All right.


There's no reason for
us to argue about it.

The important thing is,
what are we going to do now?

-Mary Warren.


-Honey is just the
kind to write letters.



-Well, now that's a how
do you do I like to hear.

My husband, God
rest his soul, only

knew how to grouch at
this hour of the day.

Best grouch in the
county, I used to say.

-It's a big county.


-Is the mail maid here?

-Got a letter, huh?

No, not yet.

Nice young man waiting
for you out there, huh?

-Mrs. Bailey?


-Why isn't he somebody?

-What do you mean?

-Well, his uncle's a doctor, and
he just works at the station.

Why isn't he somebody?

-Well, nobody looks down on him.

He's a grown man that--

-That's just it.

A grown man--

-Ah, women in the kitchen.

It's a good sign.



-Yeah, women in the
kitchen mean food.

Had your breakfast?


-Well, have some coffee.

-Poor it out, ma'am.

Poor it out.

You feel excited?


-You've got a sense of circuses,
parades, giant spectacles?

-What are you talking about?

-It's in the air.

Can you believe it, Mrs. Bailey?

I've got a surprise
for the lady.

She can't even feel it.

The communications are dead.

The wires are down.


-The local Houdini
show's [INAUDIBLE].

Nothing up my sleeves.

-Oh, Alan.

How you talk.

-It's a present, Francis.


For me?

Well, what?

What is it?
-Why don't you take a look?

It's out in the hall.

-Always I had to ask for things.

Nobody just brought me anything.


It's Mr. Callahan.

How'd you know I liked it?

-I thought you might.

You like music an awful lot.

-Makes you stop
feeling lonely, like--

like you really are some place.

-Like you're connected
to something, huh?

-Yeah, that's it.

Like-- like a connect
with something.

When I was a kid, I used
to do this all the time.

You know, big family.

Nobody ever having
time for anybody else.

Used to make me feel
real good, like-- like I

was somebody special.

-You needed music
to make you feel

like something special
in those [INAUDIBLE].


Alan, why aren't you somebody?


-Why aren't you somebody?

I mean, well, your
uncle's a doctor,

and-- and you work
down at the station.

Why aren't you somebody?

-Well, I am somebody.

I'm me.

-That's not what I mean.

You're-- you read a lot.

You know a lot of things.

You could be somebody important.

-Inside myself, I am
somebody important.

-Oh, that's not what I mean.

-Be somebody, huh?

Well, that is your idea
of what a somebody is.

The example of the times.

The model.

The man with the limousine
and the diamond cuff links.

It's the way you
grew up, Francis.

The way you grew up.

-What's that got to do with it?


That's the word.

Well, I am a success.

I did what I wanted to do.

Grow up, inside myself.

Look, Francis.

My name's Alan Wall.

I live in Winnicon, Ohio.

Why can't I be a man in the
20th century who doesn't want

to own a yacht or
drive the fastest car?

Are those the signs
of being somebody?

The truth is they
prove you're a nobody.

-That's crazy.

-Is it?

Like kids.

They join something to
get a uniform, an award,

a badge-- something to make
them feel like somebody.

That's self-protection.

Well, I don't need
those things to live by.

-I-- I--


-Ah, you mixed me up.

-You mix yourself up, Francis.

You remember what I told you
that night in the station?


-That there are a lot
of ways of growing up?

A lot of ways?

Different kinds of growing up?

-I don't know.

It didn't seem
like being nobody.

It didn't seem like--

-What didn't?

-Well, back in--

Oh, what'd you
start all this for?

Speeches, speeches.

All the time, speeches.

-You started it yourself.

You must have had a reason.

Francis, about me
being somebody.

Is it important to you?




MRS. BAILEY: Francis, I can't
keep the eggs warm much longer.

-I'm coming.

-Look, how about having dinner
with me tonight at the station?

About eight?

-Do you dance?

Do ya?


-What are you doing?

Well, well.

I thought I saw a manhole with
the cover left off the top.

May I help you?

Any old mascara?


Last Sunday's crossword puzzle?

-Where is she?

-Look, I know you
know where she is.

She's written you
letters, and I want

to know where those letters are.

-Why, Skeets.

I didn't know you could write.

-You know the boss, Timashin?


-Well, he owns this place.

I happen to have
influence with him.

-I've had it.

-You know, you could be
out of work a long time.

Now quit stalling.

Where is she?

Don't make it tough on yourself.

-Look, there's something
I want you to know.

During the last
conflict, I riveted

ships together for a living.

There was lots of
fresh air on that job.

That's something I've
been missing around here.

Now, you get out.

-OK, baby.

I'll be seeing you.

-Not if I see you first.

-No limousines.

No yachts.

But you do dance
to the best bands.

-Yeah, at the old Winnicon,
the fanciest night

spot in the world.


-I learned at school, when I
was a freshman and everything.

-I bet you think I'm still
pretty much of a kid.

-Well, it's not that.

It's just that everyone
should have a solid beginning.

A place from which
to start growing.

So it's all one
motion, and not a hop,

skip, and a jump, or a zig zag.

You know, you may
not believe it,

but besides dancing, I can
also sing beautiful things.

Like the night's a funny thing.

What comes out of it, I mean.

Everything in it can come
roaring and rushing up,

and then suddenly, standing
silently on the platform's

a girl.

And the first thing you want
to know is, what's her name.

What's her name?

Well, the world's full of lonely
people, and everybody in it

needs each other.

Look, you're afraid to talk.

-Please talk.

I want to hear you talk.

Where did you come from?

Who'd you know?

What did you do,
once upon a time?

-I live a good life.

-That's not once upon
a time, that's now.

Right now.

I should've known you.

Once upon a time.




-What did you call me?

You called me Honey!

-This came three days ago.

Go to the police, Honey.

-Are you crazy?


Don't slip back.

I didn't tell you
because I wanted

you to know I love you first.

-And now you want
to get me killed.

-No, change.

I want you to change.

But hold on to what you've got.

All kids get scared.

Kids run away.

Where do you think
you can run to?



Before they get to me.

Before they kill me.
-You've got to go to the police.



What do you know about it?

Sitting inside this crate, a
million miles from anywhere.



I'm going to go
before they kill me.

-You can't keep on running.

I'm leaving.

Three days ago, and you've got
to wait until now to tell me.

-Because I wanted you to know
who and what you really are.

That the Honey
Weber was a mistake.

An accident.

Something that happened
to you without you

even thinking about it.
-Let me go.

-Go to the sheriff.

-Let me go.

-You know, my husband,
God rest his soul,

never could face an egg
first thing in the morning.

He used to say, Mr. Jones, it
was the sorrow of the hens.



There's a nice young
man waiting to see you.


You may not remember me.

I'm a friend of Dave Weber's.

There's a friend of yours
outside named Timashin.

Now, uh, just what are
you going to do about it?

let's pause a moment

and look at our Westinghouse
program and Betty Furness.

Ever plug in your dinner?


Well, you can, just like this.

If you own a wonderful
Westinghouse electric roaster

oven, it plugs in anywhere and
it will cook a complete meal

all at one time with these
handy heat-proof glass dishes.

And you can enjoy all
your favorite menus, too.

Here's a delicious
dinner, for instance.

Look at that first dish.

It's a pork chop casserole.

And then the second
dish, baked potatoes.

And here in the
third dish, chocolate

nut pudding for dessert.

Then you just put on the lid.

Set the dial at 375 degrees,
and forget about it.

In an hour, your dinner
will be all ready,

and your roaster oven will
do everything but serve it.

And the Westinghouse
roaster comes

in mighty handy as
an extra oven, too.

For instance, it's wonderful
to roast your turkey,

say holiday time or any time.

Look, I want to
show you something.

Just look here.

A great, big, luscious turkey,
and plenty of room for it,

too, in the Westinghouse
roaster oven.

You just set the
dial at 300 degrees,

and the roaster oven takes over.

And then when that turkey comes
to the table, all golden brown

on the outside and
succulent meat inside,

well, I'll bet you'll
say that the pilgrims

should've had it so good.

This 48-page cookbook comes
right with the Westinghouse

roaster oven, and it
gives you lots of ideas.

Everything from, oh, how to
bake pies and cakes to cooking

enough spaghetti and
meatballs for 50 people.

And the Westinghouse roaster
oven is so inexpensive, too.

It's only $42.95.

And that price includes
the 48-page cookbook

and the heat-proof glass dishes.

Go to your Westinghouse
dealer tomorrow

and ask to see one
of these roasters.

And remember, you can be
sure if it's Westinghouse.

ANNOUNCER: We return now
to Westinghouse Studio One,

and "Plan for Escape."

-So east is east,
and west is west.

And we meet up anyway, huh?

Thanks to the US mail and
a lady named Mary Warren.

-I won't tell, Skeets.

I swear I won't tell.

Oh I know you won't.

-I'll go away with you.

You want that,
don't you, Skeets?

I'll go with you.

Stick with you.

Timashin doesn't have to know.

-That's for the smack
on the head you gave me.

Now, let's get out of here.

I've been around
here long enough.

-Oh, let me stay, Skeets.

I won't tell.

I swear I won't tell.

-Oh, you think
I'm playing games?

Let's go.

-Francis, you're going out?

-Yes, she's going.


-Now, look, lady.

This is none of your business.

-This happens to be my house.

-Still, lady, it's
none of your business.

-Get out of here.

-Get your things.

Now look, lady--

-Get out of here.

-You should never stick your
nose where it doesn't belong.

-If you make any trouble,
and I'll call the sheriff.

-I'll wait in here.

-Francis, who is that man?

-You've got to help me.

Go in there.
Give him anything.

Give him something.
-What is this?

What's going on?

-Keep him in there.

Don't let him come in here.

Everything's going
to be all right,

only I've got to get away.

And I need time.



-Now, just what do you want
with that girl, anyway?

-Lady, why don't you
go cook something?

Fry an egg or something.


-The window, you fool
She went out the window.

She's running.




Where are you?





Get me the sheriff.

The sheriff, quick!

-Alan, I've got to get away.


-You've got to help me.

They're here to get after me.

They came to Mrs. Bailey's.

Both of them.
-What's the matter?


-They're coming.

I've got to escape.

-Oh, stop it.

-They're coming.


-I've got to get away.


What is it?

-Timashin's the one
who killed Dave.

He knows I saw him,
and he's afraid.

They'll kill me.

I've got to get away, Alan.

I've got to get away.

-Did you call the sheriff?

-I'm scared, Alan.

-That's no reason for
not calling the sheriff.

Listen, did they
follow you here?

-For Pete's sake, say something.

-Oh, don't let
them hurt me, Alan.

-Do you like yourself?

Running scared?

Trying to crawl into a corner?


They're here, all right.

There's a car out there.



Take this.

Hurry up.


TIMASHIN: Hey, why don't
you open up in there?

-I'll get 'em spun around and
knocked up against the sides.

TIMASHIN: Open up.

Don't move, mister.

There's someone coming
around the other side.

-She's not out here.

TIMASHIN: Where is she?


-That girl.

-I didn't see any girl.

-Give me the keys
for everything.

Store room.


Keep an eye on him, Skeets.

-Now, come on, talk.

This is none of your business.

Where is she, huh?

Come on.

Where is she?

What do you want
with her, anyway?

Built pretty good.

Nothing in her head but an
alarm clock always going off.

Bling, bling, she's nuts.

What's this?

-A dog.

You going to shoot it?



-Any sign?

TIMASHIN: Not yet.

Now, come on.

Why don't you talk?

Give it up, huh?

You've seen that Honey.

You know what she is.

A dumb kid, always
playing games.

Listen, did you ever-- did
you ever, at Christmas,

see a tree all lit up and
pretty, all dressed up?

Then after Christmas,
fall in the gutter?

Well, it's after
Christmas for her.


-Find her?


Now listen, mister.

You're going to talk now.

You're going to open up your
mouth big and give me answers.

-I don't have any answers.

-You're going to
answer me or I'll

break every bone in
your body one by one.

Now talk!

-You've got the gun, huh?

You've got the meanest voice.

Therefore I've got to talk, huh?

What do you guys stand for that
I should talk? [INAUDIBLE].


-Put the gun down, Skeets.

Put it down!

You're crazy if you
think I won't shoot.

-Now, baby, just relax.

Take it easy.


-Come out.

-Put down the gun.

Put down the gun.

HONEY: Come out!

-I'll make a deal, Honey.

I'll leave, and I'll just
swear, I won't bother you.

-Come out here.

-I'll give you dough.

You can use dough.

You know how to spend it.

-You've got the wrong girl.

Honey Weber stayed with you
and I'm going to get you both.

Don't move!

Maybe we'll stay here all night.

Somebody'll come along.

Maybe the man to fix
the wires you broke.

But you're going
to get it all back.

You and Skeets and Timashin.

I don't want it anymore,
lying in the dark like that.



-There's the man!

The one outside the door!

-All right.

See what's going on in there.

-There's the other one!

-All right, boys.

Let's be nice and peaceful.

MRS. BAILEY: Alan, Francis
is waiting outside.

ALAN: Francis?


Where are you going?

-I don't know.

Just going.

-I sort of-- sort of hoped
you were looking for me.

-Oh, Alan!

Now Betty Furness wants you
to guess where this girl is.

BETTY FURNESS: Well, it looks
like she's basking on a beach

where the sun shines all
winter long, doesn't it?

But that's just a travel
poster on the wall.

And she's really right
in her own living room

getting a suntan with a
Westinghouse sun lamp.

Just a few minutes
a day and you'll get

are really good tan with
the Westinghouse sun lamp.

wonderfully convenient

to use anywhere in the house,
especially since Westinghouse

now offers you this

Now, with this handy

mirror or [INAUDIBLE].

So many places all

And it's only $0.35, and
only Westinghouse brings you
