This TV Program Drew Many 'Name' Actors
30 August 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

I'm amazed many times when the show begins and they list the guest actors. There were a lot of "name" screen stars who made appearances on this television program. This one stars Harvey Keitel, Sondra Locke and Beau Bridges. The episode is directed by Clint Eastwood. That's not a shock since he and Locke were married.

Keitel as an impressionist painter about hundred years ago is a bit of a stretch, however. Harvey will never come across sounding anything less than the low-life guys he plays in Martin Scorcese films.

Anyway this episode, to be honest, lagged in parts and didn't have the entertainment value of the other shows. That's not to say it didn't have merit, as it's haunting quality was definitely worth something. I can't help but the think of the film, "Portrait Of Jennie" (1948) but that was far superior to this little TV episode, but if you liked this, check out that movie.
