  • Great Star Turn For Macready

    • ilovethismysteryhorror
    • 2/26/17

    His role is really the star.The others have varying success with this script,but he goes from mild-mannered to psychotic killer with no turning back.Can't understand how there is no recognition of Wharton as the foreman.Macready had a very distinctive voice and no one could hide a facial scar that involved an entire side of his face and jaw!Suspend disbelief?All that can be said is this wouldn't have gotten my attention without Macready.The others just slow the action,but that steamroom scene,Bannon shows that he's hunky,and George looks it,too,even if he shows only freckled shoulders and one side of his chest-suspect the other side scared from that car accident on an icy road in his college days.Glad it didn't cost him an acting career-he was a good actor and IMHO,a good looking man.

  • Love It For The Steamroom Scene Most Of All

    Show more than your shoulders,George,why so modest,Jim wasn't!The steamroom is my favorite scene,but this is full of great ones.When Wharton starts losing it,Macready is terrific.Who can blame his character for wanting revenge,but he should only have gone after the ones who framed him,the jury had a job to do and were convinced of his guilt.This really is a major star turn for someone I consider a great actor,George Macready!He always seemed so well prepared and contributed much to any project he worked in.

  • Definitely Macready's Film

    Macready falsely accused of woman who he supposedly promised marriage.He's sentenced to hang,and nearly does until Bannon's reporter saves his bacon.He's then committed to a mental hospital where he starts exacting his revenge.Could anyone else have been any more sinister.And watching Macready's face when Mazurki is giving his neck a good rubbing the right or wrong way is precious!

  • A Dark Stormy Night When I Watched It

    • 8/2/16

    Another I Love A Mystery vintage.George Macready is Harry Wharton,falsely accused and convicted sentenced to hang,but saved in the nick of time by a crusading reporter.Has thrills,chills,comedy,and a wonderful job by Macready,who may not have been on the football team,but grabs the ball and runs for a touchdown here!Have watched repeatedly since getting the dvd this weekend.

  • One Heck Of A Psychological Thriller

    • alleyesonmacready
    • 8/2/16

    Bannon is reporter who helps free Macready from prison just before he is to be hanged for a crime he didn't commit.On release,he is institutionalized,and "commits suicide" in hospital.From there,he whittles down the jury to there are only 5 left.So many perfect scenes along the way,plenty of non-stop suspense.Can't praise it enough!

  • George Macready The Star All The Way

    • ilovemacreepy
    • 8/2/16

    Watched the dvd last nite.Great I Love A Mystery installment,though not releaed as such.Bannon is a reporter seeking to right an injustice to Wharton,convicted of murder,sentenced to die by hanging.From the start,Macready is a tough one to catch on to.He starts murdering the jurors.And he really makes this film what it is!Just watch his scene in the mental hospital,and the steamroom.Absolute classic!

  • George MacCreepy At It Again

    • iloveamysteryseries
    • 8/2/16

    This man just rocks as a psychopath.Another role as a psycho,he just runs with it.Everyone else has to try to catch up to him.As a convicted murderer with just barely time to spare before execution,he exacts revenge on those who convicted him.My favorite scene is Cullie's,with Mazurki giving the ole neck that almost was stretched a massage.And what's with the total coverup towel vs Bannon's more revealing one?New England modesty?So many great scenes,sit back and enjoy this gem,even better than George as Jefferson Monk in I Love A Mystery,the film.
