An interesting story about a dedicated man
25 October 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the episodes from Bell Telephone's "Telephone Time"--an anthology series from the 1950s. Fortunately, a few episodes are available for viewing DVD, but it appears as if the vast majority are unfortunately not available--especially since the shows I have seen have mostly been very good.

This episode begins with a cave-in and a tunnel supplying water to farmers is sealed. As a result, a dedicated tunneler (Tom Tully)works hard with his men to meet the June 6th deadline, as he's been told that after that date it will probably be too late to save the crops. He's doing well and is proud of their work until a farmer tells him that if relief does not arrive by May, the crops of his an many other farmers will be lost and they face financial disaster. Tully cannot possibly meet this new deadline...but he's a good man and doesn't want to disappoint anyone. All in all, a decent episode but not one of the best I have yet seen. Still, it's an interesting story about an interesting and dedicated man.
