That macho image
29 February 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Checkmate travels all the way to Malaya or at least two thirds of it. Lee Marvin, industrial tycoon who spends a lot of time maintaining a macho image calls on his old friend Sebastian Cabot to spend some time with him as someone is trying to kill him. He does not exclude his estranged wife Patricia Donahue nor the young girl he's throwing her over for Myrna Fahey.

Marvin thinks of himself as an Ernest Hemingway type. But let's just say it's a tough image to constantly maintain. The best part of the episode was Cabot and Doug McClure rescuing him from quicksand. Good thing they were around, but wait to see how resourceful Marvin is.

This might have been better with a two hour format. The characters were poorly developed a bit more time might have helped. And the jungle back lot sets were not terribly convincing.
