Dead Men Tell Tales
17 January 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This time, producer/narrator John Nesbitt's "Passing Parade" takes a short look at "Your Last Act" - herein, meaning your "Last Will and Testament". Foolish, wise, spiteful, and sentimental wills are read. A goldfish is clothed, and a dog kept well fed. A little girl receives the gift of vision (a cornea transplant), from a remorseful death-row criminal. The centerpiece is Mr. Nesbitt's reading of a relatively long will, written by one "Charles Lounsberry", a Christian man with nothing material to give (his "will" was later found to be a work of fiction). It's directed by up-and-coming Fred Zinnemann, and offers a welcome look at some stars hearkening back to the days of "silent" films.

**** Passing Parade: Your Last Act (7/12/41) Fred Zinnemann ~ John Nesbitt, Vince Barnett, Claire McDowell
