The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.
Those were the days of "My Living Doll" and "Valentine's Day", featuring actors I had never seen before.
I have been in love with Mariette Harley ever since.
I thought William Mulligan was a riot. Years later, he became better known as Bert on "Soap".
I still remember the supporting actor, Victor French, playing the neighbor. A few years later, I was surprised and amused to see French described as a "veteran heavy", and yet had to admit that he was chillingly convincing as a villain. Even later, you may recall him as Michael Landon's friend on "Highway to Heaven."
