A Very Somber Account of Two Lost Souls Searching for Answers
10 August 2008 | by (Indianapolis, Indiana) – See all my reviews

This is a very somber episode (even for ROUTE 66 standards) detailing a lonely spinster of 41 (marvelously played by Jo Van Fleet) who in a impulsive moment hooks up with a married man and father who has a penchant for fooling around. Together they sneak into a mine shaft and then become involved in a cave in. The rest of the story involves their attempts to get out as well as the rest of the town's efforts to free them.

Although the issues that are brought up are overwhelmingly sad they are still very real and done in a honest way. It is interesting how the two lead characters seem quite the opposite at first, but are eventually exposed to be a lot alike. Namely two very lost souls searching for answers, but finding only more confusion in the process. This is also one of the earliest story lines anywhere that touches on the difficulties of the returning veteran to civilian life and the overall statement that is made is surprisingly tolerant and sophisticated.

Christopher Votos as the young son of the man who is trapped in the cave is a real stand out here as he creates a great deal of empathy with the viewer. His insistence at continuing to stand up and love his father even though the man is seriously flawed is quite touching.

Grade B
