The Bridge Over Vera
3 July 2010 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

This thirty minute Four Star Playhouse teleplay, A Championship Affair casts Charles Boyer as a world renowned visiting bridge champion in Seattle for a tournament. That's not all he's there for, he'd like to take things up with Vera Miles an old flame who is married now to the local reigning bridge champion Ross Elliott.

Boyer is a crafty psychological devil who'd like to humiliate Elliott as well as steal Vera from him. He's also obsessed with winning at all costs, even in contact bridge Boyer is a firm believer in Leo Durocher's adage about nice guys finishing last.

The story is a nice and finally tuned psychological thriller with the men playing psychological games with their minds. Elliott is way outclassed by Boyer in this, but does get his innings in.

A very nice television ensemble drama from the golden age of such.
