Whose Fault Is It
24 October 2014 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Strong human-interest drama. Young mothers Bonnie and Ellen have left their two toddlers alone in the next room. Then one of the kids starts a fire that unfortunately burns each badly. Not only must the mothers now cope with the serious injuries, but Bonnie blames Ellen's little girl for starting the fire. Dr. Styner (Boone) is the attending physician in this entry and turns in his usual persuasive performance. And that's Linda Stirling, queen of many 1940's serials, as Ellen-- no acrobatics here, however. Can't help noticing expert camera set- ups that add significantly to the emotional subtext. Catch the stationary camera as Styner and Bonnie walk down the long hall, leaving us to contemplate what he's telling her, thereby heightening the emotional content. All in all, it's a typically affecting episode, and a good chance to learn about skin regeneration.
