Not the best of the series, but interesting
23 March 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

First of all, you have here the real life couple June Allyson and Dick Powell, one year before Powell's death. I won't repeat the topic but the story itself is quite familiar to me. No, the main interest is somewhere else. In the actors performances and the overall atmosphere. June Allyson in particular. Look out for the scene when she speaks in the cut line phone, she is so gripping here. Lloyd Nolan is quite good too. Nothing exceptional to me but I won't say any harm about this little story.

Amusing ironic ending.

Directed by Don Taylor.
