Far-Fetched Silliness
12 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are so many pitfalls in this plot, it just doesn't stand up. For starters, how is this person going to be able to be a constant presence as time passes. Royal Dano is going to have to make speeches and campaign. Is this guy going to walk around with a gun on Inger Stevens for perpetuity. The silly accusations of the sheriff who arrests the kid who caddied for the murder victim. He once went for a joy ride. He is obviously a juvenile delinquent; send him to the gas chamber. Of course, there is no evidence other than he got mad because the guy stiffed him on a tip. But these are all conveniences. The deus ex machine conclusion is insulting (I won't reveal it, other than to say it shows almost no imagination.) I do love to watch Royal Dano. He must have been in hundreds of TV shows and movies back in the day. He is the master of pained expressions and angst. Inger Stevens was apparently a troubled soul, who, despite a modicum of success, plays the hysterical wife to 1950's perfection. That is, she is really given nothing to do but to quiver and cry.
