    When I first started watching the movie it seemed rather ho-hum. In fact, I was having a ten-minute conversation with myself before I realized I had stopped watching. But then, out of nowhere, I was hit with one of the biggest moral smackdowns I have ever seen on the screen. The wielder of the newly forged moral sword was none other than lovestruck Stevens riding in on her high horse. She starts passing judgement on everyone and everything in sight. Not even her unrequited love keeps her from telling Crosby how he has failed in her eyes. Now if this isn't enough, I was also being hit with some guilt manipulation tactics that would do my mother proud. And, of course, Fickett is the weaver of the tears and martyrdom that will fell any dutiful child or unsuspecting man. And speaking of men, the two attorneys no less, get into the act as well. Crosby's attorney suddenly turns on him because he now considers Bing a degenerate because he tried to kidnap his son. I find it hard to believe it was moral indignation on his part, but rather he was disappointed Crosby didn't get caught kidnapping, which would have led to all kinds of legal trouble. (*cough*money*cough*) Now the next attorney, Eastham, took moral superiority and guilt manipulation, placed them on the alchemy table, and delivered the final KO. He told the kid a Bible story - which basically said, "Your father wants to saw you in half." So now, Brodrick, goes to his father under full compulsion by Eastham, and tells his father the bespelled Bible story. Crosby has no protection from this type of powerful machination, so he gives in, tells his son good riddance, and is then promptly collared by the Mistress of Morals and forced to kiss her cheek. I would like to add, the highpoint of the movie for me was the foppish fisticuffs between Crosby and Eastham. Unbelievably, Crosby gets pushed into a puddle of water, but it does nothing to awaken him from his sleepwalking through this film.

  • Not your typical Bing movie

    Shows why Crosby is a much better actor than most give him credit for. Worth watching.
