Great Blake/Marvin effort
12 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

COMMENT,NOT A REVIEW-The fourth and last (they also appeared in three previous "M Squad" episodes) Whitney Blake/Lee Marvin collaboration is the best. Blake,a pretty woman who rarely had any real chance to show her dramatic acting ability,was given sufficient screen time in this episode to convincingly show her "Laura" (or "Sheba") both loathed and was dangerously attracted to Marvin's "Woody",a slick and deadly admirer. Blake showed she was quite talented and underutilized by Hollywood. Marvin here was an interesting,quirky "bad guy" ala his "Violent Saturday"/"Bad Day at Black Rock" past. It is a shame the two never worked together in a full length "noir" film.
