Amazing performance by Richard Crenna
26 February 2006 | by calico7227-1See all my reviews

I've been looking for this movie for years as a rerun, and have not seen it again. I think it was a TV movie. Richard Crenna did a fantastic acting job in this movie, and I will never forget this one! To see him as a pathetic,out of control man who destroys everyone around him, over a relentless obsession with a prostitute, is an amazing performance by Mr. Crenna. After seeing him usually playing comedies, this was quite an out of character, extraordinary performance by him. I've been a fan of his since he was Dexter Franklin on Our Miss Brooks, and that's a long time. I'd love to buy this movie if it's ever offered. I hope someone will let me know if it's ever available.
