Ralph Bellamy deserved at least a nomination.
14 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen a number of Ralph Bellamy films where he was cast as a looser type tied to his mother's apron strings. The problem is he did too good of a job. Can you say type casting? I am a huge fan of classic films because I believe it was a time when a movie was judged as good or bad by the skill of the actors and not insane special effects. There is a place for special effects that can take people to new worlds or bring us back to the past so well we feel we are there. All the special effects in the world can save a movie if the acting is bad or if a part is given to the wrong person. Sometimes the only special effects needed is in the magick kit and the imagination of the make up artist. A gifted director can bring out the best in any actor. When everything comes together at the right time and real magick is made and the viewer is entertained. When Ralph Bellamy was cast in the play and the movie he was able to show how much talent he really had. I was amazed how he transformed himself. I believe he showed the very essence of the man. He should have at least received a nomination for this grand performance.
