Forget "Marcus Welby"! When I think of James Brolin, I instantly recall a host of movies he made consecutively between 1972-1973: "Skyjacked", "Westworld", the TV-film "Short Walk To Daylight", and this compact thriller, another movie-of-the-week. After being mugged and knocked unconscious by teenagers in a department store men's room, Brolin wakes to find he's locked in alone after closing time. This might sound like a shop-a-holic's dream come true, but Brolin has to fight off vicious guard dogs all night, sometimes in clever ways. James Brolin was the perfect TV substitute for Charlton Heston: stalwart and determined, with a firm jaw and a survivor's instinct. The film doesn't amount to much--the viewer and Brolin are in much the same spot, biding time until the store reopens--but the general scenario is a good one.
