Movie Reviews

I Think You'll Be Pleased With This 60's Feature Flick!!!!!

(3 out of 5 stars)

"TV star Brett Halsey is the lead in the inexpensively assembled Girl in Lover's Lane. While drifting through a small town, Bix ( Halsey) becomes involved with local tease Carrie ( Joyce Meadows). Shortly afterward, Carrie is murdered, and Bix is held responsible. The actual killer is feeble-minded Jesse ( Jack Elam), but the villagers aren't as quick on the uptake as the movie audience. Only the intervention of runaway youngster Danny ( Lowell Brown) saves Bix from a lynch mob. Girl in Lover's Lane was directed by another TV habitue, Charles R. Rondeau. -- Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide"

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Ah yes, the timeless story of two strangers from different worlds falling in love before they're able to cope with it. Okay, so maybe it's not Romeo and Juliet, but Girl in Lover's Lane does at least follow the major elements of the old Shakespearean tale. Drifter Bix runs into rich, sheltered runaway Danny, and the two pick a random town to settle in for a while. Bix has no idea that this is the place where he'll meet the girl of his dreams Carrie, and Danny has no idea that this is the place where he'll meet his first sleazy prostitute.

Bix loves Carrie dearly, but he knows he's not good enough for her. He's just a lowly drifter, and doesn't know anything else but drifting. The complication of Carrie in his life is too much for the poor dope.

While all this mess is going on Carrie's being stalked by Jesse, the town weirdo. He sees her with Bix, and he don't like it one bit. So he goes crazy and kills poor Carrie, and she dies in Bix's arms. Oh, how can such drama ever be resolved? The movie finds a way, but it's too bad the crucial confession scene is so botched.

I love this movie, even though certain things like unpolished visual transitions squeezed it into the Mystery Science Theater 3000 movies-to-make-fun-of library. Their name for Bix was Big Stupid, and I guess that's what I'll always call him."
