It was the town blacksmith that did it, but nobody knew until the end when he came back for more but got shot by Sylvia's dad.%0D %0D I think I was in love with Albert because he was such a mensch.

Every episode of "Dr. Kildare" with Richard Chamberlain in the title role. (James Franciscus in "Mr. Novak" ran a close second.)
