re:Looking at Larry Storch
18 March 2006 | by Ricky_BozarthSee all my reviews

I completely concur with richard d.fuller1's comments regarding Larry Storch. After viewing this documentary, it is hard to look at him the same way again. Not just for the nature of how he's portrayed in the documentary(lovingly,and with respect),but because when you watch him in anything he was appearing in in the sixties,you realize he must have been carrying a lot of painful baggage. You can look at the man's face and tell that-even though he's very funny-he carries painful memories of repressed secrets from many years. He knew about his wife's secret life and said nothing, until his step-daughter,June Cross,made this fine documentary. Larry Storch is definite proof of that old cliché that pain hides behind the smile for comedians. Incidentally,he has a nice part in another documentary,The Aristocrats. It would have been nice if the producers of that film had included his entire version of that classic joke.
