Tina Louise and Aldo Ray give pretty good performances in the mediocre ep of "Kraft Suspense Theatre", "The Deep End"
12 August 2012 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This episode of "Kraft Suspense Theatre" marked the reunion of Aldo Ray and Tina Louise, having previously starred in the movie God's Little Acre several years before. Here, Ray's Sam Kimber, a rich man in the construction business who finds out his paramour-Lucille Benton (Ellen Burstyn known then as Ellen McRae)-was found dead under mysterious circumstances though we learn early on what happened to her. Ms. Louise plays his loyal secretary, Angie Powell. Besides the dead woman, Ms. Burstyn also plays her look-alike sister, Barbara Sherwood (no mention of them being twins). And Clu Gulager plays a detective named Dan Walsh posing as an insurance adjuster. This was just so-so for me, perhaps because of some abrupt editing (though that's probably more due to the uploader on YouTube than the original broadcast) and the way things seem to be quickly resolved. Still, "The Deep End" ep of "Kraft Suspense Theatre" is worth a look.
