HELP!! Seeking info on old 50-60s show episode      Fri Mar 14, 2008 1:20 pm Reply with quote

Hi. Hope someone can help; this is driving me nuts!! I'm trying to find out which episode/show something came from. It was probably a Kraft Theatre or Alscoa Theatre or something similar, but I"m not positive. I only saw it once as a kid and am dying to find it again! I do remember certain details:

The plot involved a group of robbers who hide their haul and themselves in a gas truck that's been altered to include a hidden compartment under the gas-storage area, where they hide, taking turns driving. One was a professor sort who masterminded the thing. When one pair of drivers gets stopped by a cop who wants to check the gas lever (which would give the whole thing away), one of the crooks starts doing movie-star imitations, including Cary Grant and Cagney, to divert his attention. When another pair of cops stop the truck later, trhere's a different pair driving and when one asks the driver to do some of the imitations the "first" cop told him about, all he can do is a terrible Cary Grant. The episode eneded with a leak developing in the tank, and all the crooks hiding end up getting drowned...

Can anyone help??? Thanks!
