I Was Pulling for Leslie
7 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"A Question of Fear" is one of those bets that take place when a group of men have to exhibit their testosterone levels. Leslie Nielsen, normally a comedic actor, plays a soldier of fortune who is appalled by another man's (Fritz Weaver's) description of being utterly beset by fear attempting to stay in a haunted house.. Nielsen claims he has never been afraid and bets Weaver 10,000 dollars that he will not die of fright staying in the same house overnight. The game is afoot and Nielsen bids adieu to his rival. There is a great deal of techno-fear engendered by Nielsen is expecting this kind of stuff, and rejects it. Of course, we know that something more sophisticated and more cerebral is coming, so we wait it out. It's interesting. Throughout the entire episode I was pulling for the "bad" guy. I wanted him to have the wherewithal to succeed. This must have been a relatively expensive episode to produce.

I ran across "The Devil Is Not Mocked" a summer or so ago, so I knew how things would transpire. It tells the tale of a battalion of Nazis approaching a castle where they suspect an underground movement is being initiated. Rather than being repelled, they are met at the door by a gregarious, dignified man in a cape. He invites them in. Even their armor is allowed to enter the courtyard. The servants see to their needs. The host is unflappable. He continues to insist they will not find anything but are welcome to continue to search. The Nazi captain is convinced that there are escape routes but that no one will escape. This one can be figured out easily about a third of the way through. Still, it's a good deal of fun.
