I Guess 'Blah' Is The Best Word To Describe This
5 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a short story about a football quarterback who finds he has heart trouble and will not be able to play again without great risk.

To be honest, it's a very forgettable movie despite the decent cast of Victor Mature, Lucille Ball, Lizabeth Scott, Lloyd Nolan and Paul Stewart. The film was just kind of blah: it was watchable but not interesting enough for me to see it again, although maybe I would enjoy this more today knowing the actors better. When I first looked at this, I was pretty new to classic films. Then again, the throaty Scott playing a social-climbing wife is not worth seeing again. Scott was better suited for film noirs.

Personally, I wouldn't waste your time on this. The film just doesn't have any spark to it. As I said, it's too blah, or "gloomy" as one critic here put it.
