The great Strother Martin in fine scene stealing form
20 June 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Take a Dare" actually anticipates the SURVIVOR reality series decades away, with a game show contestant dropped on the island, forced to make do alone for an entire week if he hopes to secure the $10,000 grand prize. A rash of disappearances have the castaways mystified, with the Professor's hammock, Mary Ann's plates, Ginger's frying pans, and the Howells' silver knives and forks all missing. Before long the presence of the Take a Dare contestant, George Barkley, is revealed, relaxing with all the stolen items and unwilling to allow the castaways to ruin his chance at $10,000. For once, Mr. Howell with his many millions would seem to have the answer, but Barkley doesn't believe his cash and jewels to be real. Not only does he last the entire week he appears to have gotten away with cheating, but for a simple mistake that renders him speechless. The great Strother Martin is in typical scene stealing form, as shifty and smarmy as the role calls for, one of the series' finest guest performers.
