A Very Special Thriller From An Earlier Time
18 June 2004 | by (Huxley,Iowa) – See all my reviews

Brotherhood Of The Bell is a very special thriller from an earlier time in the made for television era of the early 1970s.I watched this recently, and I compared it with the film The Skulls, and The Skulls lost out.The Skulls storyline just seem to fall apart in the middle of the movie, and I was left feeling flat.The Brotherhood Of The Bell was in a different realm.I was take in from the first frame to the very last frame. I did not want this movie to end. Glenn Ford was excellent as the man under extreme pressure. I think this is his best performance, and I have seen most of his movies. Rosemary Forsythe was so elegant and she played the part of the wife just right.I got a kick out of Will Geer's performance as the father to Glenn Ford's character.It was so unlike his character as grandpa Walton in the Waltons television series.I give this movie a rating of 10 for excellent. I highly recommend this movie to fans of stories about secret societies.
