Tightrope is a forgotten noir-ish crime drama that aired on CBS during the 1959-60 season. The show's noir feel is no accident. The show's creators also wrote two low-budget film noir classics: D.O.A. (1950) and The Thief (1952). This episode originally aired May 10th, 1960 and features Whit Bissell who you may remember as the mad scientist in both I Was a Teenage Frankenstein (1957) and I Was a Teenage Werewolf (1957).
