Whimsical and well-made trio of short films...
24 February 2002 | by dwpollarSee all my reviews

1st watched 2/24/2002 - 6 out of 10(Dir-Roy Kellino): Whimsical and well-made trio of short films made by the husband & wife team of James and Pamela Mason. This movie plays out like a pet project of the couple which it probably was and shows how well-rounded an acting talent James Mason is. His wife isn't bad either which I'm surprised I haven't seen her in other things. The first short is kind of a murder mystery, the second is kind of a romantic drama, and the third is a sort of light comedy piece. They all are done well with the last being the weakest and the in-between sketches discussion between the husband and wife add kind of a commentary feel to the movie. On DVD with 1963(Charade) movie put out by Madacy Entertainment despite the lack of similarity between the two except the title.
