Crossing Paths with Joel Crothers and Barbara Steele
23 February 2012 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

At a semester-ending fraternity party by the beach, tipsy Burt Brinckerhoff (as Alan) drinks an entire pitcher of beer on a dare. After he passes out, "dead drunk," the others decide to play a trick on him. They stage it so Mr. Brinckerhoff will wake up thinking he "killed" rival Duke Howard (as Mark) during an argument. To make the "body" appear really dead, doctor's son Joel Crothers (as Robert) gives his pal a harmless injection, while Barbara Harris (as Beth) applies some bloody make-up...

The scene makes sexy Barbara Steele (as Phyllis) queasy, though it was mostly her idea. Beatnik-styled Severn Darden (as Franklin) notes, "We're not the lost generation, we're the stupid generation," while Petrie Mason (as Dodo) observes. Later, the entire group is in for a shock. This episode should be seen for its cast, especially the interesting juxtaposition of future "Dark Shadows" TV serial actor Joel Crothers and future horror "scream queen" Barbara Steele, who would eventually reverse those roles...
