So-So Start for a Classic Series

PE: Most of the non-horror episodes of Thriller have a bad rep. They're boring, they're slow, they're The Alfred Hitchcock Hour rejects, they're better left unreleased. You'll hear a lot of this and more from us in the next few months but "The Twisted Image" is not a bad episode, it's just not compelling or exciting. It's certainly not a "thriller," but then Boris Karloff's Yawn might not have attracted quite so many viewers. It's got weak elements: it's slow and padded; some of the scenes change abruptly; Natalie Trundy is a babe (and director Arthur Hiller surely agreed since a majority of Trundy's scenes are shot in close-up) but not much of an actress (much better years later in the Planet of the Apes flicks); and the story doesn't so much have a climax as a "stop at 49 minutes." You can read the rest of the review at A Thriller a Day. Two guys review a different Thriller every day! http://athrilleraday.blogspot.com/
