Well acted, but not among the best shows in the series.
24 January 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Charles Boyer stars in this installment of "Four Star Playhouse". He plays a waiter whose wife is ill with some illness they never, ever really talk about--it's just some lingering mystery illness (perhaps TB?). The wife should go to the hospital for treatment, but it's expensive and the family cannot afford it. Eventually, they cannot delay any longer and she'll have to go--and go to the charity ward. The husband is awfully proud and cannot stand accepting this, so he and the son desperately look for another option.

like all the episodes of "Four Star Playhouse", the acting is quite good. William Campbell co-stars as Boyer's son and they both were excellent here. The only negative is the story--it's not particularly strong and the ending seems a bit contrived. Still, an adequate episode of this series is still quite good.
