What Television can be
29 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

I was 19 when I saw it, and a fan of anthology TV. Cassavetes was captivating and it brought back memories of his short lived "Johnny Staccato" series. Highlight of the episode, was the "purchase" of a lyric from down and out song writer Ben Gazzara. I think he called "Aversions". It was terrific. To echo another reviewer of the episode, it is unfortunate we will never be able to see these episodes in DVD form. However, I did learn, several years ago there was a Cassavetes retrospect in New York and "Free of Charge" had a screening there. Would had loved to have seen it again.
