Frank Gorshin - A Real Talent
17 March 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode of Naked City highlights my theory that time and place produce certain type of face and voice never to be seen or heard again. Frank Gorshin who always reminded me of Richard Widmark was symbolic of a time when actors were often all-rounders - interesting people with backgrounds of hard graft. Gorshin uses his knowledge of life and produces a genuinely moving portrait of a small time hustler and part time stool-pigeon who has inevitably painted himself into a corner and is now desperately fighting against his fate.

Gorshin did do a brilliant (astonishing!) routine prior to the debut performance of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan Show. Perhaps it highlighted how things were about to change - Gorshin's sophistication to youthful energy and simplicity. Out with the old and in with the new.
