'ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS':
"THE CASE OF THE LOQUACIOUS LIAR"
"THE CASE OF THE RED RIDING BOOTS"
"THE CASE OF THE ENVIOUS EDITOR"
The Higher Education Act of 1965 and the Pell Grants which began in 1972 (but under a different name) would not have been of much help to a young man in the 1950's struggling to get through college and then on to law school.
A young man named Sampson was faced with such a dilemma, and I believe he put himself through school by driving a truck. And being the handsome, virile specimen that he was, he bedded a lot of women - some of them married, not that it mattered - along his routes. One of these women was Irene Rankin, wife of a professor living in a small town.
Once he graduated law school, Sampson got himself a job as an assistant district attorney for the city of Los Angeles, California. He was abrasively zealous in his pursuit of convictions, most notably in the murder cases listed above.
But that doesn't necessarily mean that the leopard changed his spots. From these three cases, we know nothing of ADA Sampson's private life. So it's pozz'ble, just pozz'ble, that he continued with his womanizing ways.
This is only supposition, based on the fact that H.M. Wynant played both roles in Toobworld. And thanks to my blogging buddy Ivan of "The Thrilling Days Of Yesteryear" (Link to the Left, My Students Of The Macabre!), this "By Any Other Name" post was made better by the screen captchas from 'Perry Mason'.
