Ann Margret and Michael Parks are two of the more underrated stars of the American cinema. Ann-Margret burst into stardom with her amazing rendition of "Bachelor in Paradise" at the Oscars, Ann set the house afire,and got a thunderous ovation. Ann-Margret worked non stop for years with stars such as Bette Davis and one of A-M's better movies was Universal's Bus Riley's Back in Town. Ann-Margret is perfect in this movie and I am so glad that movies today are being re evaluated. (In the old days movies were spun out for release quickly and then forgotten. Michael Parks is another much neglected star and he made quite a hit in the in John Huston's "The Bible" with Ava Garnder . This movie is based on William Inge's story and there was a sorta gay subplot in the script but Universal diffused the story and made it not so aware in the movie. I know I am hoping for a miracle but if Universal went back and restored the trims and the outtakes of this movie it might be the classic it deserves to be.
Viva sexy Ann Margret who is my candidate for the most under appreciated actress of modern times.
