In "The Legend of Robbie," an underpaid supermarket assistant manager must decide if he will go along with his friend's plan to rob the store.
As the episode opens, Robbie and his friends are playing poker. Afterwards, one of his friends, Dutch, brings up an idea that Robbie had joked about during the game--stealing a lump of cash from the store. Robbie is apalled that Dutch would take him seriously, much less, instantly come up with a plan for how to do it. Dutch tells him to stop being a chump. Why not live it up before he is too old?
Robbie is conflicted because his boss, Mr. Harris, trusts him. On the other hand, he would like to have enough money to date Sandra, one of the cashiers. Will he go along with Dutch's plan, or is he being set up?
"The Legend of Robbie" was written by Walter Black and produced/directed by Paul Roberts. Larry Robinson played Robbie, George Matthews played Dutch, Joan Lorring played Sandra, and Eric Dressler played Mr. Harris. This episode aired on May 8, 1960.
