She's an Odd One
29 July 2007 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Pretty good entry distinguished by the odd relationship between Wayne Morris and loner June Lockhart. Their romance is cut short by Morris' engagement to the daughter (Gail Kobe) of a displaced Southern plantation owner. Kobe's brother has sworn vengeance on Morris for what he believes is a blot on the family honor. Nonetheless, Morris and Kobe marry anyway, but with unfortunate results.

The script is by Sam Peckinpah in an early screen credit for the legendary film-maker. Lassie's mom, June Lockhart, has an offbeat chance to shine as a rather strange girl whose demeanor suggests some sort of inner imbalance, which eventually shows itself. And with his haircut in a very unlikely 1950's flattop, WWII naval air ace Wayne Morris seems oddly laid-back given the strong emotions surrounding him. Somehow this entry lacks the kind of intensity needed to spark the drama. With a little more flair from director Ted Post, this could have been a more memorable 30 minutes.
