Alienation in LA
scarr-6 from St John's, Newfoundland
16 August 2006
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.
