Grimaces Are Fine Here-Case of Grimacing Governor Merits ***1/2
Hal Holbrook was far better here than in a previous episode. Why? He actually tackles a case in the style of Perry Mason. Raymond Burr would have been very proud. This time he really doesn't let his personal life interfere in his conduct of this case involving the demise of a gubernatorial candidate and the governor as well.
There is plenty of intrigue here especially when the second murder occurs.
Tony Curtis is brutal in his brief stint as a mobster involved in this mayhem. While he looks much older and pale in this part, he delivers a good performance as a racketeer.
