David Logan lives at home with his mother and he's still upset that his father left them many years before. He is haunted by an event when he was twelve years old and he came home to find his father with a blue-eyed blond. He tells his mother he has an appointment at 11:00 so he skips dinner and heads to a bar. There he meets a girl and repeats several times that something big is going to happen at 11:00. He gets into a fight with a sailor in the bar and tells him the same and then again with a patron in an Irish pub, now saying someone is going to die at the prescribed hour. When the 11 o'clock news come on the air, you learn the full story. Written by
Not a particularly effective effort. It is about an incredibly emotional young man who carries great hatred toward his father. We hear of an appointment that he has at 11:OO. Of course, we are left in the dark as to what is going to happen at that time. While we wait he engages in a series of destructive acts. The odd thing is the patience shown by the people he encounters. Personally, no matter what his father was, the apple settles right next to the trunk. It's hare to empathize with this childish rant, and when things are finally explained, it's a disappointment. One interesting figure is that of Clu Guligar, who often played young toughs, sort of a poor man's James Dean. He did a lot of snarling, sort of that gunfighter who seeks out the old gunman so he can get himself killed.
