Ralph Bellamy stars as John Vickery, a brilliant but alcoholic attorney. Vickery's opportunity for professional and personal redemption comes in the form of hat-check girl Flo Russell (Marguerite Churchill). An otherwise intelligent lass, Flo has a bad habit of being in the wrong place in the wrong time, and winds up being arrested for a robbery and murder rap. Vickery manages to clear her name in court, whereupon she returns the favor by getting him off the booze and back on his feet. Back in the 1950s and 1960s, The Final Hour showed up on TV at least once every three weeks; where is it today?
