"Against Her Will" Is Excellent; "Wounded Heart" Is Not

""Against Her Will" is the second movie in the "Incident" series, starring Walter Matthau and Harry Morgan. "Against Her Will" was as good as "Wounded Heart" was bad. Matthau and Morgan turned in their usual artful performances and expertly played off each other. I enjoyed them together even more than Matthau and Jack Lemon. "Wounded Heart", on the other hand, was replete with wooden actors spouting hackneyed dialog. I rated this DVD 5 stars because of "Against Her Will". "Wounded Heart" I rated 0 stars."

"This review is about "Against Her Will". Aparently Walter Mathau starred in a few TV movies in the 1990s about a lawyer back in the 1940s. This is the second movie in the series. In this movie he has moved from near a POW camp at Bremen, Colorado to Baltimore, Maryland. A federal judge, played by Harry Morgan, that drafted him to defend a German at the POW camp that had been accused of murder in the first movie "The Incident", now wants him as a partner in a law firm. Excellent acting, story, sets, and music make this well worth owning. In this movie, he must try to get a young woman out of a state mental hospital but the hospital and state don't want to let her out because of what she knows about their care. There are two other movies in this series, Incident and Incident In A Small Town. If you enjoyed this catch To Kill a Mockingbird (Collector's Edition).
In "Wounded Heart" a young successful New York stock trader must return to her home town to visit her father, played by Stuart Whittman, after a stroke. She has hated him for fifteen years after her parents split up. A revisit to the ranch in Texas rekindles some feelings and some new ones develop with her stepbrother. This concerns her fiance that rushes out to Texas to keep her from staying there. Meanwhile a cutthroat company is using any means possible to get her father off the ranch so they can build an elaborate modern shopping center. Reasonably decent romance/drama. If you enjoyed this catch Thicker Than Water. Good quality DVD with plenty of replayability. I enjoyed both movies, especially "Against Her Will" and I think most families would enjoy the first one and those that like romances would like "Wounded Heart".
One so good, one so bad

"Against Her Will starring Walter Matthau was the third and final installment in the " Incident Series " and was as fantastic as the first and second. Anything he appears in I find always hold may attention.
The second part of the Double Feature was a movie called Wounded Heart.
This was truly awfull. The lead actress played by Paula Devicq had very little talent and appeared to play the role as if to say-- I am
pretty and that should be enough for any audience.
Unfortunately both shows are paired together.It is a shame they did not leave out "Wounded Heart" and just include another Walthau movie."

"Another installment of the incident series. A young girl is being used as a guinea pig at a psychiatric clinic against her will. Judge Bell is totally against helping her but Cobb puts his foot down. It takes a lot of work but Mr. Cobb finds the proof he needs to help this girl.
