In "One Way Street" Roddy McDowall plays a young man who struggles against his uncle's bad influence.
As the episode opens, Georgie Williams is returning to his old neighborhood after serving time. He is going to his Uncle Burt's place, but only because he has nowhere else to go. His own parents were killed in the war, and his crooked Uncle Burt is his only family.
But, when he arrives, Georgie gets a surprise--a new aunt. His uncle has recently married, and he even seems happy to see Georgie, too.
Although he likes his new Aunt Edna, Georgie knows that his uncle has an angle. He wouldn't marry for love--only for her money.
As it turns out, his new aunt has a heart condition, and his uncle keeps her medicine in the kitchen cupboard..right next to the rat poison.
Will Georgie cash in with his uncle's latest plan, or will he break away from what he knows is wrong?
