I'm in the Minority Here **1/2, 25 April 2015
6/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

You would think that Harry Lime was the pillar of society the way Joseph Cotten and Valli made him out to be. Go know that this supposed endearing person was in the black market business and dealing with inferior penicillin that sickened and caused many deaths.

The film takes place in post World War 11 Vienna and yet all soldiers, whether they are Russian or Austrian police look like Nazis.

I will admit that Orson Welles has some scene stealing when it's finally revealed that Harry is actually alive. He is usual cunning, sinister and threatening way.

Joseph Cotten is fine for the part, but that music played over and over is far from endearing.

By far, this was one of the best episodes of this hit series that I have seen in a long time.

Dealing with Peggy's aspirations, and Don's family, this was certainly worthwhile to watch. Is it to one's advantage to sell one's apartment when it is filled with furniture or empty? Don learns this all to well by episode's end.

Don's daughter, Sally, is excellent in this episode. Her resentment towards her parents comes into focus when a young man who she knew from years back visits to inform them that he has flunked out of school and will be heading to Viet Nam. His scenes with Sally's mother are memorable.

Sally and Don have a rude awakening when she feels that Don is coming on to one of her friends, who is 17. Don really plays the father role here, something that has been lacking in his character.

Fall Out **, 18 April 2015
4/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Jane Darwell definitely stole this film here as the slick grandmother, way ahead of her time who wants her grandson to take his legacy and open a business with it. Eddie Albert is the grandson and he elopes with Joan Leslie, the girl of his dreams.

The problem is that the legacy has been handed over to a bunch of crooks, led by Anthony Quinn. A full payout to them would come only if the mother, played hysterically by Minna Gombell, is dead.

Alan Hale as Darwell's son-in-law is also along for the ride. The film is basically inane because whoever heard of such a practice of legacy with the mother having to die before a full payment is made? How Darwell outwits the gangsters is amusing by film's end.

Neighbors (2014/I)
Beyond Awful 0*, 18 April 2015
1/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A most distasteful, annoying and disgusting film that I have seen in a long time.

A very immature couple prone to using profanity live with their newborn in a house only to have a fraternity move in next to them. Joining them so as to beat them regarding the noise doesn't work so the film becomes devoted to each group doing nasty things to the other with complete mayhem resulting.

Where is the rest of the neighborhood in all this commotion? The dean of the college comes across as a perfect idiot with her 3 strike system and the police are also looked upon to being quite foolish here.

The film becomes so awful that it shows their baby swallowing a condom and that all this nonsense has a nasty effect on their marriage.

Takes the Low Road **, 18 April 2015
4/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Very disappointing film with Joel McRea and Randolph Scott showing that years had passed from their glory days.

You would think from the premise that the film was about getting the shipment of gold safely to where it belonged. Instead, we get bogged down with a girl, Mariette Hartley, who flees from her overly zealous pious father and runs with the crew and a young man intended, to meet up with and marry the man of her dreams, James Drury. Instead, she weds a drunken Drury and the film is devoted to her getting away from Drury and his awful brothers.

The gold shipment is almost a forgotten entity here if it weren't for the fact that one of our heroes is prepared to steal the gold for himself.

Soap opera doesn't come better than this film/

Claudette Colbert's character is complex as she starts out as the chaperone for Dean Jagger's wild daughter and in the meantime falls for his chief rival in tobacco farming-Karl Malden. Malden gives one of his best performances as the ruthless tobacco man who is ready to destroy coming in his path. A worker to the bone, hard-driven and vicious to the core, he makes life a living hell for Colbert's son- Troy Donahue who finds he can no longer take it and opts out for the navy instead.

This is a tale at its best of good versus evil and that money, power and greed can't ultimately win.

The cast is great with Donahue also shining as the ethical son and Diane McBain, daughter of Dean Jagger, the kindly ethical rival in the film, who ultimately weds Malden's no good son.

The irony shown in the film is wonderful with Donahue eventually joining forces with Malden's youngest daughter, as ethical as they come.

Connie Stevens does well as a field hand who becomes impregnated by Malden's son.

9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Money can't buy happiness and revenge abounds in this very good episode.

Don befriends the waitress with a rather sad background and after spending the night with her, the conclusion here is not happy at all as we're dealing with a very troubled lady who delivers a very good performance.

Don's newly divorced wife comes with her mother to take her things out of the apartment. The mother goes ahead and empties out the entire apartment while having a tryst with Roger. Mother is frustrated and by episode's end she is intent upon leaving her husband.

It appeared that Peggy was about to enter into a lesbian like relationship with that artist. This doesn't come about.
