Good mystery with great ending.

The lone survivor of a commercial airliner crash is unable to provide the authorities with any information about the accident because he is suffering from amnesia. He claims to remember nothing prior to waking up in the hospital, including his own identity. When an FBI agent gets involved in the investigation, he begins to suspect that there is more going on than meets the eye. This is a fairly intriguing episode with an ending that is satisfying but not as clever as it might have been. Genre: Suspense

What I liked about this CBRSMT episode was E.G. Marshall's words of mystery. From the Prologue to the Epilogue, our host pulls us in to solve this puzzling tale as we hear the talented voices of Russell Horton (as Theodore Williams) and Ian Martin (who wrote this and played Dr. Sedgefield). What I disliked, was that there weren't enough music or sound effects. Bryna Raeburn (as Jackie Williams) was fitting for her role. But for a story such as this, it needed Fred Gwynne and he could've played the role of J.P. Henderson (played by Ken Harvey). The story was building up in ACT-1 and ACT-2. But at the very end of ACT-3, it was something that I didn't expect. This is not a Fantasy-Mystery.

I agree with everything you said here Armand. Your insights are right on. My only disagreement is the Lt. Dr. Colezzi was played by RussellHorton who also played the Lone Survivor. Lt. Dr. Colezzi would have been better played by Fred Gwynne. Russell played him as a dufuss trying to hide that he was both characters. Bad choice to do so as he should have switched his character interpretations to have the story make better sense.
