The Secret Life of Ernest Stockhoeffer
4 November 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Ernest Stockhoeffer lives a dull life in a small, dull town. When a man who shoplifted a watch from his shop ten years earlier atones by giving him a thousand dollar bill, Ernest realizes it, stops the express train to go down to Miami and live a little and winds up bluffing his way into success.

Screen Director's Playhouse was a very good anthology series, but this is one of the weakest entries and it is not helped much by Alan Young's washrag characterization of Stockhoeffer and his alter ego, Vernon Hathaway. Director Norman McLeod could direct a great comedy given a script or talented comics -- he managed to direct the Marx Brothers in two of their more chaotic Paramount comedies -- but can't do much with the script of this one.
