Going After a Big Nothing!
3 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The setup on this is quite good. A guy named Doug Spaulding (it would seem that half of Bradbury's boy protagonists are named Doug or Tom) was tormented as a child by a guy named Ralph. Because Doug was small and artistic, becoming an accomplished pianist, the bullies were on his case all the time. He was reminded over and over that he had no right to be in their gang and that his interest in music was worthless. Of course, Ralph had a pack of toadies who were probably just as scared of him. Well, young Ralph promised Doug that he would continue to threaten him, even when they were both old and gray. Doug has just had a birthday (he's probably in his sixties) and he decides it's time to do this guy in. He packs up toys that represent the pain he has endured, puts a small pistol in the same box, and heads off to take care of business. First he visits his old house and spends time with a dog that lives there. Then he checks to see that Old Ralph still lives in the house he grew up in. He does! I thought the conclusion was right on because sometimes tables get turned. Richard Kiley is quite good as Douglas.
