Unusual, but Flawed
10 November 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Unusual story involving a nun and a priceless antique statue. A wealthy man (Armstrong) donates the antique to a convent to honor an elderly Mother Superior (Elsom) for her help when he was a boy. Sister Pamela (Lynley) goes to pick it up, but has it stolen by low-life Bresson (Gulager) on her way back. Now the Sister feels a duty to get it back, even though she leaves the convent for civilian life.

Suspense kicks in fairly early since we wonder how the innocent-looking Pamela can go up against the thuggish Bresson. Trouble is the mood is under-cut by Gulager's egregious over- acting. He doesn't just move, he hurtles; he doesn't just talk, he shouts. As a result, attention is moved from the plot to his excesses. Too bad, since a subtler approach had real possibilities. Lynley is well cast, looking positively angelic in a carefully composed way. The climax is a surprise, consistent with a religiously themed episode, but done in a fairly subtle way. Overall, the entry is an imaginative, if unfortunately flawed 60-minutes.
