Trivia

This British production of Rod Serling's famous "Playhouse 90" play was in fact televised under Serling's original title, "Requiem For A Heavyweight". When the play was turned into a movie starring Anthony Quinn in 1962, the original title was retained in the US and elsewhere, but the film was inexplicably renamed "Blood Money" in Britain, perhaps in an (unsuccessful) effort to bolster its box-office chances.

One of the pinnacles of early Television
21 April 2005 | by (the lower depths) – See all my reviews

This was an incredibly moving production, performed live, with all the tension & electricity of an off-Broadway play watched from the first row. All the performances were peerless, you just never had a sense you were watching actors (as opposed to the satisfactory but much more "stagy" film). Way above & beyond all the others, though, was the presence of Jack Palance, an actor of immense (easily Shakespearean) sensitivity & grace who for once in his career was given a chance to show what tremendous depth & grace he possesses. I saw this show when I was in high school & was moved to my inner core & have never forgotten it. I will always consider Jack Palance one of the great actors of the 20th century.
