His Own Worst Enemy
26 February 2011 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Although Susan Hayward is good in anything she does and she's been in a few films that were less than classics, she does all right in this film, Heat Of Anger. In this Hayward is at her professional best as an attorney going into practice with nephew James Stacy.

Her first client is contractor Lee J. Cobb who is accused of murder when a man falls off a steel girder at a job Cobb was bossing. As Cobb was the only other one on the girder he gets arrested for murder. That and the fact that Cobb is known as a roughneck helps put him in a jackpot.

The ending is strictly on a minor key, the solution is a simple one that I won't reveal, but let's say Cobb is his own worst enemy.

This was one of two made for television films that Hayward did at the end of her career. The second, Say Goodbye Maggie Cole is far better than Heat Of Anger. This one is all right though.

Ironically both Cobb and Hayward would be gone in three years and Stacy had his career cut short in a bad motorcycle accident where he became a multiple amputee.

This might have been a good TV series.
