Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Upon his release from prison, gangster Dan Varrel (Gene Barry) vows to kill Lois Williams (Nancy Gates), the woman responsible for his brother's death. Catching up to Lois, Dan is surprised to find a lonely, impoverished, and thoroughly depressed young woman who all but begs him to put her out of her misery. Almost instantly, Dan changes his tune and does everything he can to help Lois pull herself out of her doldrums and gain a new lease on life -- but his motives are not entirely altruistic! "Salvage" had been previously dramatized on the radio anthology Suspense, with Burt Lancaster in the leading role.
