Alienation in LA
16 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

Forty years later, still One of those things you hear once on hot summer night when you're a teenager, and it stays.

Alienation in LA. Harrybelle is different, so he must be crazy. Sent for psychiatric evaluation, he takes up and takes off with two other "misfits" and encounters a third, Sidney, an out-of-work lyric writer in Hollywood. What can you get for a dollar twenty-five and a gasoline credit card? "Sidney's Lyric" is a haunting cry of pain and loneliness in the night in the 60s of LA.

The Chrysler Theater was one of those anthology series from the 50s and 60s that sometimes hit, sometimes missed. Here, a superb Hit. Like some many other of these one-off episodes, it will likely never be available for contemporary viewing, but lives on only in memory.
