2/7/67 "There Goes the Ball Game"
2 March 2016 | by schappe1See all my reviews

Kimble witnesses a kidnapping at a baseball game. The victim is the daughter of a powerful newspaper publisher who will do anything to get his daughter back. Kimble is reluctant to be interviewed by the police and claims he can't do anything to help. The publisher, (Martin Balsam), has Kimble picked up when the kidnappers demand that t witness deliver the ransom money. They plan to kill him. Kimble doesn't want to go through with it but the publisher has learned through his newspaper who Kimble is and threatens to expose him to the police if he refuses to take the risk.

Another delicious situation for Kimble to worm his way out of. Equally delicious is Linda Day (George), who plays the daughter and Susan Seaforth, later along-time soap star, as her friend. The kidnappers are an interesting pair: Gabriel Dell, who started his career as a one of the Dead End Kids back in the 30's and Jonathan Lippe, now known as Jonathan Goldsmith but better known as "The Most Interesting Man in the World" on those beer commercials. He's so young here, (28 then, now 76), that you'd never recognize him if you didn't know that's who it was.
