Movie Reviews

Good old fashioned tv drama suitable for family viewing
somewhere in England | england | 12/04/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A good print of four tv shows from 1953-4 by four stars - hence four star playhouse.
David Niven stars in and produced "Man on a Train", a good natured crime/mystery story. The Dick Powell show is "Sound off, my love" featuring the denial of the newly disabled and a little domestic problem that could lead to murder.
From Ida Lupino, "House for Sale" -would a single woman drive to a remote house with a property agent today? Perhaps a bit cliched and in the best horror film tradition of "why'd she do that.." with a rather daft proposed victim but nicely shot and acted.
John Howard stars in "Lady of the Orchids", another domestic misunderstanding situation, with a light touch of romance and a satisfactory unconcluded ending (left to you to imagine). Beautifully played.
A little gem of a collection of early tv drama."
Wonderful actors of years gone bye.

"I remember my mother watching these shows late at nite. I was young and she enjoyed them and now i do to. This was when tv was a teenager. They still stand up today. I feel the net works need to look at the past and go back to it. The stuff they have on i do not watch."
