Quotes

Rudy King: [after Charlie has attended an important meeting while hung over] I'm not going to mince words, Charlie. We've known each other too long for that. You were a disgrace this morning; I can still smell the liquor on your breath. I don't know how many of those men knew you were hung over, but I certainly did.

A movie that packs a emotional subject on Alcoholism that is brutally grand but horribly real
12 July 2002 | by (Chapel Hill,North Carolina) – See all my reviews

Its amazing that this seldom seen movie isn't out anywhere on video but it reminds us all of the emotional impact and trauma the affect us all when the painful and bitter subject of alcoholism comes into view. It can affect that lives of everyone we truly loved around us and it can pay a dangerous and painful price. I don't remember much about this movie when I saw it years ago as a child,but I did however got the chance to see this movie again when it aired recently on a cable channel and it stuck me in total awe. Dick Van Dyke's performance is astounding to watch as we see a man who has every to gain but terribly slips away to deep abyss of being a alcoholic losing everything he has worked for including losing his beloved wife and kids. I had an unbelivable impact on me when I saw this and it reminds me of how so much of how this disease can put you in either losing it all,ending up in jail,or sadly six feet under in the grave. Richard Matheson's masterful screenplay is a genuine classic as well as Dick Van Dyke's role of his career in which he should have won a Emmy for his mindblowing portrayal.
