Throwing and Roping the Bull
10 November 2011 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This episode of Screen Director's Playhouse is all about Walter Brennan, who continues his slide into the character he played through the early 1960s, Grandpa on THE REAL MACCOYS. He spent the last forty years of his life playing old men, a role he could assume by taking out his store teeth, having lost his real ones in the First World War.

Director Stuart Heisler -- this is, after all, screen DIRECTOR'S playhouse -- does not show much in the way of directing acumen in this one, although with Brennan, all he needs to do is have the cameraman Eddie Fitzgerald point the camera. Fitzgerald would later film more than a hundred episodes of Lassie and his pleasant compositions are good to see.

Oldtimers Olive Carey and Edgar Buchanan also have roles here. Producer Hal Roach certainly got some real talent for this series!
