The more dreadful Jack Smight films I see (like this one) the more it's dawning on me that "Harper" was a hole in one from a lifetime duffer.
- Mike McCrann
Beyond dreadful. I watched this turkey until the very end as I had never seen it before. To see George Peppard in Home From The Hill (1960) and then only 5 years later in this drivel. Plus his constant drinking (he admitted to a bottle a day) made him already look middle aged and flabby in this drivel. Elizabeth Ashley was gorgeous and her Donald Brooks wardrobe stole the film. Lucky Herbert Marshall did not have to say a word in the movie. If only others had been as lucky. Jack Smight was a terrible director and can't even give any style to this drek. And Artie Johnson is beyond belief. Sally Kellerman's character must have been a psycho and a nympho (as per the script) for her character to have married this loser. But the best line is when Kellerman says "scat" to her husband. Mona Washbourne must have been dazed to be among such dreadful company after some of the great films and actors she had in her career. This movie rivals Buddwing as the worst amnesia film of all time. All TCM viewers should plead for amnesia after seeing this farrago. Actually amnesia is not required as the film is instantly forgettable.
Truly, you cannot be seious.
A verbose, snail paced little high school play with a huge cast of the highest echelon B actors. There are some "good" reviews for this boring little soap opera? Good Lord, how badly you must want to watch drivel.I was embarrassed for each performer, especially ARTE JOHNSON as a saloon singer?? Positively awful. Tragic casting. The comatose Marshall was 'best in show'...poor man.
The Third Day: A TCM Sleeper Entry
- Doc Long
Well regarded film that was not a monetary success at the box office. George Peppard rekindles his on-screen romance with Elizabeth Ashley a year after they starred in "The Carpetbaggers". Peppard again plays the role of Ashley's husband but this time he is suffering from amnesia due to an automobile accident. Pre-code giant Herbert Marshall is Ashley's wealthy Father and he has placed his son-in-law in charge of the family business, much to the chagrin of the creepy cousin played by Roddy McDowall. And therein lies the intrigue. Good supporting work by veterans Arthur O'Connell, Charles Drake and Robert Webber as well as new-comers Sally Kellerman and Vincent Gardenia. Future "Laugh-In" TV show funnyman Arte Johnson provides unexpected depth to his role as a nightclub piano player and husband of Kellerman. Well worth watching and highly entertaining thanks to some to-notch performances.
Peppard and Ashley
George Peppard scored a great hit at Paramount in The Carpetbaggers and found a great co star and a lady love Liz Ashley which would cause Peppard to divorce his wife of many years. Warner Bros re teamed Peppard and Ashley who soon married, in this film The Third Day, and who as I recall tried to place themselves as an acting couple ala The Newman's. This film failed and so did the Peppard marriage.Peppard had a string of great hits in his early career How The West Was Won, Breakfast at Tiffany's, The Carpetbaggers and working with great directors such as John Ford ( HTWWW) and Vincente Minnelliin Home From The Hill and Carl Foreman in The Victors.
Please Release The Third Day to DVD
- John Korolow
The Third Day, a 1965 suspense drama starring George Peppard is not to be missed. Fans of the late fine actor will appreciate his signature style of fine acting and newcomers will understand why Peppard was such a convincing dramatic performer. The storyline is memorable as the film keeps the viewer on the edge of suspense as Peppard's character traces his life over the previous three days, involving many suspenseful moments. I saw this movie a couple of times on the late, late show on television many years ago and it has stuck with me ever since.
Great amnesia movie
A classic suspense movie with George Peppard, Elizabeth Ashley and Roddy McDowell. The hero, George Peppard, awakens after amnesia and finds himself to be the rich, successful and well-married (to Elibabeth Ashley) owner of a company. Problem is, everyone hates him: for his infidelity (his wife) the community and company (for his arrogance and wastefulness and funning the family manufacturing business into the ground. There is a another problem: his lover is dead. What does he do? He can't remember anything. Great suspense and acting.
