Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A Step Out of Line stars Peter Falk, Vic Morrow, and Peter Lawford, a fairly lustrous lineup for a humble TV movie. The trio of leading men portray average Joes, all Korean war buddies, plagued by a string of bad luck. With creditors hounded them at their very fireside (so to speak), Falk, Morrow and Lawford decide for the first--and last--time in their lives to resort to dishonesty. Pooling their military skills, the boys plot and plan to knock over a bank safe. A Step Out of Line moves confidently towards its anticipated climax, sped along by the expertise of its triple-threat star lineup.
