The Fingers of Fear

Written by Robert H. Andrews, from a story by Philip MacDonald
Directed by Jules Bricken
Starring Hehemiah Persoff, Robert Middleton, and Thayer Roberts
Originally aired on February 21, 1961

Although it appears that a mentally handicapped man is responsible for the recent brutal slayings of several young children, an incredulous police detective isn't ready to close the case just yet.

The face of Nehemiah Persoff should be familiar to any serious genre fan. A ubiquitous television presence for nearly four decades, Persoff guest-starred in classics such as The Twilight Zone, Mission: Impossible, The Wild Wild West, Columbo, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Law & Order, to name only a few.
