In "The Strange Death of Gordon Fitzroy," an ex-con is consumed with a desire for revenge.
Johnny Malone was sent to prison for attempted robbery, but soon, he will be released. He and his associate, Gordon Fitzroy, had planned the robbery together, but Johnny was the one who went to jail. It was Fitzroy's own jewelry store that they had tried to rob in order to collect on the insurance, but their plan failed. The explosives they used to crack the safe were too powerful. When the police arrived on the scene, Fitzroy double-crossed Johnny and told them he had caught the burglar in the act.
Johnny's face was horribly disfigured as a result of the blast, so badly that he can't even look at himself. When Johnny gets out of prison, he has only one objective -- to find Gordon Fitzroy.
"The Strange Death of Gordon Fitzroy" was written by Bruce Cassidy and Robert L. Richards. William Spier produced and directed. Chester Morris of Boston Blackie fame, starred. Also appearing were Wally Maher, Hans Conried, William Johnstone, Howard Duff, and Lurene Tuttle.
