Okay, if enjoy these old TV shows as I do
28 July 2007 | by (Houston) – See all my reviews

Amusing nostalgia and interesting talent, but not much else is going on here. I enjoyed seeing a young Charles Bronson, but Dick Powell was not up to his usual performance. He was much better in The Bad and the Beautiful (1952). He probably was just going through the motions on this one. After all, this was just television, but Powell was pretty big in TV. I still remember the Dick Powell Show. As an Aldrich TV directorial effort, there were some interesting shots, but I would really like to see some of his China Smith work. I wonder if it is available anywhere? Of course, the appearance of Strother Martin was a pleasant surprise. You can see a Film Noir influence in the some of the cinematography, but not the story. Overall worth a watch, but the plot is weaker than your average Perry Mason.
