Westinghouse presents Grace Kelly! ... "Studio One" installment far too ambitious for its own good
19 November 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

To say CBS's "Studio One", a dramatic anthology series filmed live for television in New York City, was tightly-budgeted is an understatement. The creaky sets and unattractive furnishings are one thing, but the scattered camera angles and nervous performers are really something to see (and to cherish, though not always for positive reasons). This adaptation of an overreaching story by Virginia Douglas Dawson wants to be Gothic stew, romantic melodrama, and ghost story all in one--and credit should be given to the production team for at least giving it a go. Grace Kelly is 'introduced' playing the part of a young nurse recounting an experience caring for an invalid woman that ended in the patient's demise--through no fault of her own. Though directed by Franklin Schaffner, and featuring a cast of no-doubt-seasoned pros, this presentation is incredibly stilted. One must assume these episodes were put together extremely fast, with little time to smooth out the rough edges. As for Kelly, she does a solid job under the circumstances. The most telling moment of Grace's ability comes in a second-act chat with the Plantation Mammy-sounding maid: about to launch into a lengthy speech, Kelly is nearly interrupted by the other actress, but eases her way around the confusion and plows forward. It's one small sign that this lady for ready for bigger things.
