After hearing Eddie's radio appeal Dennis and June go on the run. With the police disapproving of his involvement Eddie's work is not helped when Mary's ebullient father Tom insists on interfering in the case. Eddie also notes that Mary is a hard drinker and, given June's own choice to stay with her father, he wonders whether she might be better off with Dennis. Sometimes, however, what is right and what is the law do not coincide, as Eddie learns. Written by don @ minifie-1 See less
