Depressing

Well-acted and produced, "My Father's House" is a rather depressing drama made for ABC-TV that finds heart attack victim Cliff Robertson remembering the happier times of his youth.

With Robert Preston playing his father in the flashbacks, and with death casting a grim shadow over the story, this is almost a companion piece to 1963's "All the Way Home," based on James Agee's "A Death in the Family." In some ways, it's also reminiscent of Rod Serling's Twilight Zone episode "Walking Distance" in which a middle-aged Gig Young is transported back in time to his secure, carefree and happier childhood. There's nothing supernatural here, though. Grim reality is explored instead, and the results are frequently moving and depressing as hell.
