Description by OLDIES.com:
When the young son of a policeman witnesses a murder and the kidnapping of his mother by a trio of delinquents, he goes into shock and is unable to give the cops any information about the incident. The teenage hoodlums are John Barrymore, Jr., Corey Allen and Gerald Sarricini, and their kidnapping victim is played very convincingly by Betty Garrett.
Musical comedy star Betty Garrett goes dramatic big-time in the hostage drama SHADOW ON THE WINDOW. Betty plays Linda Atlas, the mother of seven-year-old Petey Atlas (portrayed by Jerry "The Beaver" Mathers). When Petey witnesses a murder committed by a trio of juvenile delinquents, he wanders off in a state of shock. The three punks (John Barrymore Jr., Corey Allen and Gerald Sarricini) kidnap Linda, who's also witnessed their crime, holding her prisoner to keep the boy from talking -- if and when he recovers. Meanwhile, the authorities launch a frenzied manhunt in search of the catatonic boy, led by Petey's dad, police officer Tony Atlas (Phil Carey).
