This is one of the strangest movies I've ever seen. Half the time you can't tell if you're watching a dream sequence or it's actually part of real time. It may be all my fault. I enjoy the classic movies from the 40's and 50's with stars like Greer Garson, Robert Mitchum, James Stuart, John Wayne , Gregory Peck, etc. I was saddened to see one of Chuck Connors last acting efforts be such an embarrassent.
