Paul Douglas at his best
26 August 2001 | by (Leonia, NJ) – See all my reviews

This is a very wry twist on The Prince and The Pauper. Paul Douglas is a gambler who has run afoul of the law and evades serving his time by stealing Priest Van Johnson's identity. This simple plot is worked extremely insightfully and from the heart by Douglas and Johnson. Joseph Calleia adds balance and irreverence as the cynical chief of police. A couple twists you won't see coming coupled with one that you probably will, but will love anyway, makes the whole experience unforgettable and triumphant.
