It resembles REBEL because the same guy wrote both movies. Rod Steiger's okay because he's only in it for five minutes. He was also pretty good as a shrink in THE MARK (1961), but Rod's just about the worst movie actor of his entire generation. John Ericson was always terrible, no matter what. Bland, whiny, weak, untalented; a drag on the market. In the leading role, of which he had very few, fortunately; he was a disaster. Just like this over the top in all ways and cliched in every manner possible Very Terrible movie. MGM kicked John loose, fast; four years. Gee, Mom's the Culprit. There's a new one. Or an old one; See also REBEL. The only reason on Earth to watch the unending 103 minutes of this turkey is the lovely Pier Angeli. But she has what amounts to a secondary role. Nonetheless, when she takes Philip back at the end, you want to scream Teresa, throw a dart and find a better man. Sheesh. Which was what I tried to tell her when she married Vic Damone. Fatal taste in men, onscreen or off. TERESA's not quite Bad enough for my Worst of 1951 List, but it's on Dis-Honorable Mention '51, for sure.
