  • So enjoyable

    This was a lovely ethereal romantic movie. The background music was stellar and the acting and directing was superb. Troy Donahue was such a big, big star in my day, and I just wish he had done many more movies than he actually did. And I LOVE TCM!!!

  • Troy Donahue,iconic actor from the 60's

    For my generation,Troy Donahue can hardly go wrong.Here he went all the way trying to show his not-so romanticside by playing a deranged character.It is a step further from "Parrish" like romantic movies.I think he succeedson his own terms.Excelent acting by Barry Sullivan too. Kudos to TCM for playing his early roles

    I can't fathom what possessed William Conrad to pursue this project, except for the cliche, "What I really want to do is direct." I suppose it was an interesting life experience for him, and he did get the film made. This is such an unintentionally hilarious potboiler that I could not believe what I was seeing. It's not as quite as bad as some, but Troy is still so unforgivably wooden, even as a psycho, that it's difficult to watch with a straight face. Joey gets to scream, cry, and wail, "NOOOOOOO!!!" a whole lot, and adds to the general cheese factor hilarity. Poor Jeanette Nolan. She has never fully gotten her due as one of the most talented character actresses ever on a screen, or on the radio. Her husband, John McIntyre, also deserves more props than he has ever received. She is buried under hideous hairstyles and wigs, as well as lots of tacky mid-Sixties outfits. She is forced to deliver the terrible line, "Bully for you! Keep them barefoot and pregnant!" Blech.I hate Troy and Joey, and this film does nothing to change my opinion of them. I give TD some credit for wanting to break out of the wooden mannequin roles he was so well-suited for, but he just doesn't pull it off, as it is beyond his limited talent. Joey was never very talented, anyway, and her vacuous pouting is appropriate for the stupid, spoiled, selfish scatterbrain she's playing. That doesn't mean that it's a good performance.All in all, it's a terrible film only worth watching for the curiosity value. I don't know what's up, TCM. I think you're standards are slipping. Go back to the beginning, please.

  • Hope This Plays Again Soon On TCM

    Quite good film,showcasing Troy Donahue as more than just a pretty face.He may've had substance abuse problems,but he was always a solid actor,as seen here for more than just a pretty boy!Barry Sullivan & Jeannette Nolan give good solid support,as does Nicholas Coster,before becoming a stalwart on Daytime Soaps,where he was always reliable to make it worth suffering thru awful Soap hunks and hunkettes emoting!Good direction by Bill Conrad,TVs Cannon,with some voice work by him included in the film.

  • Excellent Troy Donahue Thriller

    Troy Donahue was a big star at Warner Bros with a slew of hits: A Summer Place, Parrish, Susan Slade,Rome Adventure, Palm Springs Weekend, A Distant Trumpet and his finale at the studio My Blood Runs Cold.William Conrad directs this black and white film sturdily and the story works in an efficient manner. Joey Heatherton is the co star after Carol Lynely dropped out. (Otto Preminger had the comely blonde on a contract and optioned it)I would like TCM to have a day saluting Troy Donahue sort of Summer Under The Stars program with hisWarner Bros movies mentioned above.
