Scarface Arm Wrestles Lando Calrissian

Television producer (David Wayne) wants to do a special on a testy old doctor (Paul Muni) who lives and works in a slum neighborhood. He finds the task harder than imagined, as the doctor wants nothing to do with fame or recognition and certainly nothing to do with a television show. Eventually he succeeds in getting the doctor to agree to do the show but more and more obstacles keep popping up to prevent it.

Paul Muni's last film is an unassuming little drama about idealism and nobility. Sentimental at times, sure, but never dumb or condescending. The cast is strong. Muni is flawless, which should come as little surprise. David Wayne, Luther Adler, and Betsy Palmer are all great. It's the film debut of Billy Dee Williams, who does an excellent job. The fact that he can say he once arm wrestled Paul Muni in a movie should stand up there among his career highs. Look fast for Cicely Tyson in a bit part. It's really a fine movie, a bit slow perhaps but definitely worth your while.
