The plot is old but serviceable: a man returns to his hometown after years of absence to find that things have changed for the worse. However, for this plot to work, we need to know something about what the town was originally like and how the man fitted into it at that time. We also need to know something about why and how the town changed over the years.

The script to "Pink Car" doesn't give us enough of this background information and the result is a dreary, pointless, and not very interesting movie. It also suffers from a surfeit of villains and from a decidedly unattractive cast.

Glenn Corbett, who showed promise back in the late 1950s, had lost his youthful appeal by this point in his career and seems at least ten years too old for the part he's asked too play. Leading lady Ivy Jones is drab in a part that calls for style. The "Pink Car" of the title turns out to have little to do with the plot.
