You have already read the topic in the plot line. So you know what it is all about, don't you? Paul Douglas is perfect here, as would have been for instance Broderick - machine gun talking - Crawford. Not a crime scheme but instead rather a not so usual sweet comedy drama story. I don't remember having watched such a topic in a big screen movie, nor a TV one. Yes Paul Douglas is very good in this role, as if he had to play a big company executive or a rotten politician. You feel here the noir influence from the director, just read below to get what I mean.

Good story given by John - The Lodger - Brahm who became a prolific TV stuff director after being a big screen one.
