Description by OLDIES.com:
THE HUMAN TOUCH: A master criminal wants revenge on Dr. Hyatt for sending him to jail fifteen years ago. He stages an elaborate plan involving a lookalike that frames the good doctor for murder. This episode's villain is portrayed by horror legend Peter Lorre, who seems to relish the scenes in which he faces off with Sebastian Cabot.
NICE GUYS FINISH LAST: A down-on-his-luck detective blames all his troubles on his former high school rival, now a wealthy man. The Checkmate team becomes involved when his obsession grows violent.
THE HEART IS A HANDOUT: Checkmate, Inc. is hired to protect the heir to a million-dollar fortune – who is now living in a hobo camp! The hobos in the camp are played by Dabbs Greer, Sean McClory, and a young Harry Dean Stanton (who performs folk songs throughout the episode!)
