Gritty and among Beaudine's best, and Leonard Bernstein Fans Will Love It
The half-hour format of the series at this point in its history gives us too little time for dramatic development, or learning much about the characters, but director William Beaudine makes up for that shortcoming with non-stop action. David Winters, who was an alumnus of WEST SIDE STORY on Broadway (and later in the movie) gives a charismatic portrayal of a gang member who wants something more out of life than violence and revenge, but has no clue how to get it. The rest of the cast doesn't get to do too much. And talking of WEST SIDE STORY, more generalized fans of Leonard Bernstein's music may want to see this episode to hear the composer's music for ON THE WATERFRONT tracked in through most of the show.
