Highly Entertaining
8 March 2015 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Good strong drama coupled with local color make this an entry of the caliber that distinguished the series as a whole. Buzz and Todd are working in a Cleveland steel mill. A daughter of one of the ethnic Polish foremen (Balsam) goes missing. We know from the outset it has to do with the son (Redford) of the foreman's best friend (Persoff). So when the truth comes out, how will the friends and community react.

Fans of Redford must wait til the end for his big moment. Otherwise, he mostly skulks around in silence, a long way from his usual focal role, (is that black hair he has? It's certainly not the trademark blond). Good turns from Persoff and Balsam as ethnic types. That first part with an expansive Persoff is both charming and irresistible. Also, good views of real working class neighborhoods, generally absent from screens of the day. And that's along with hellish snatches of the foundry's erupting blast furnace. All in all, the entry's a superior story and script, with Buzz and Tod nicely blended in.
