Last 10-Minutes is a Heckuva Show
30 December 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Buzz and Tod are hired to keep girl-hungry construction workers from a team of fashion models doing a shoot against the backdrop of Glen Canyon Dam.

The main reason to catch this otherwise sloppy episode is the jolting last part. There the boys along with a lone girl (Lampert) try to escape the rocky terrain that's exploding all around them. In 60-years of non-digital viewing, I've never seen anything like it, nor do I know how they made the exploding gauntlet so realistic. I can't believe the cast would risk running through real dynamite from the dam construction; nor are process shots apparently involved; nor can I believe production would spend a big amount on setting their own explosions. After all, the gauntlet goes on for maybe 5-minutes and looks dangerous as heck. So see what you think.

Anyway, the storyline appears improvised as a way of including footage from construction of the huge Glen Canyon project. Having fashion models pose against the frameworks looks silly, but at least it's a relief from looking at all the guys. There're a couple of routine subplots that add little, but give Leslie a chance to show her acting chops. All in all, this is an episode to watch without necessarily needing to listen.

(In passing—Old movie buffs can catch an aging Billy Benedict, grown out of his patented newsboy roles of the 30's & 40's, as one of the construction crew.)
