Quotes

Buz Murdock: [Buz is driving the Corvette along side of Arline who is walking on the side of a road] Look, I want you to know that no matter what it looks like, it's not a pick up. The good people need to dig each other right now or forget it. Two half truths never made an integrated single, but two truths together, man, that's a crazy square root.

Strong Dramatic Entry
26 February 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

It's a strong dramatic episode, but considering its elegiac nature, an unusual choice for a season opener. Why has the beauteous Arline (Francis) returned to hometown Butte, thereby abandoning a soaring New York stage career. She refuses to say, but Tod finds out by eavesdropping in a not-very-convincing scene. Still, what guy wouldn't be awestruck by Arline's luminous presence. Needless to say, both the guys fall for her, but it's Buzz who's out on a limb since he doesn't know her secret.

Francis is one of the fine unsung actresses of her era and that's very much in evidence here. There's some unusual local color from copper mining town Butte, Montana. Note, in passing, the huge "open pit" excavation as the credits roll. Also note the local folks making up the crowded dance floor. No movie extra's here. All in all, a superbly blended entry that manages not to compromise its tricky premise.
