A dim, fixed memory
11 August 2003 | by (Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

In 1966-67, ABC ran a Wednesday night series of "specials"-- one hour shows bearing no resemblance to one another. Two episodes became famous-- the lovely Perry/Capote CHRISTMAS MEMORY and Sam Peckinpah's career-saving NOON WINE. The debut show, with Alan Arkin playing a magic-realist NYC cabby, was remarkable as well (script by Murray Schisgal). Even though IMDb records no other data on "Dare I Weep...", I am reasonably sure it was a mid-winter installment-- a deeply melancholy drama based on an early Le Carre story or script, in which Mason was manipulated into sneaking a man he hated (was it his father?) out of a Communist country. I remember little else except a morose surprise-ending, but was struck, years later, on seeing Carol Reed's MAN BETWEEN with Mason that the pieces had strong similarities.

Mason was an extraordinary actor, and those recognizing belatedly his stature deserve a look at this little 50-minute film. Does anyone know if it has survived?
