Some better then originals
20 June 2005 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

I love this show. Robert Wagner starts the show off as the host. He mentions that these TV shows were made to combat TV back in the 50's. And instead of going to the movies, the movies came to us at home. These are remakes of very famous movies such as Laura, Miracle at 34th St, All My Sons, the Ox Bow Incident. Some IMO are better then the movies because they are not as long as the originals. The remake of Laura was on par with the original because of its length. Laura was a movie which was very good but it only really needed 45 minutes to tell. Even though no one can replace Clifton Webb, it was still very good. Same with the Last Patriach, which is a remake of Broken Lance and All My Sons. John Cassavettes played the angry young son who served 5 years n prison only to have his 2 brothers turn on him when he comes home. No one can play the angry young man like him, no one. Also the remake was 47 minute, all I think was needed to tell this much duplicated story. Take a look at this show. You see a lot of future big names doing some of them. Or a lot of older established actors. The sets are not as lavish as the original movies and the shows are at the most 50 minutes longs. But in this case less is better
