Movie Reviews

Superb Dean tv performances - a must-own
A. Andersen | Bellows Falls, VT USA | 03/31/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Three of Dean's half hour tv dramas are presented here with lots of extras. I AM A FOOL and THE UNLIGHTED ROAD are well known but SOMETHING FOR AN EMPTY BRIEFCASE is a find- thought lost and not seen for half a century.Dean is brilliant in these three very different performances, giving us a kaleidoscope of what he was capable of. He is vulnerable and yearning in I AM A FOOL, confident but sensitive in THE UNLIGHTED ROAD, and macho/sexy in BRIEFCASE. In fact, his performance in the latter makes one wish he had played Liliom or Billy Bigelow (LILIOM/CAROUSEL) - it's a case study for the perfect interpretation of that role.Dean was incredibly sexy and incredibly talented - his talent as displayed in the dozens of tv dramas he appeared in showcase his abilities far more than the three released Hollywood films. Any fan of Dean's must collect these performances - there are a number of them out there on DVD and VHS: HARVEST, THE BELLS OF COCKAIGNE, HILL NUMBER ONE; I AM A FOOL; THE UNLIGHTED ROAD; SOMETHING FOR AN EMPTY BRIEFCASE; LONG TIME TILL DAWN; ABRAHAM LINCOLN, etc.This is a must-own rarity DVD for every Dean fan."

"I agree this set contains a great selection of material. I'm pleased with the DVD quality. But, unfortunately, there is a "Stardust Records" logo 3 times during Something For An Empty Briefcase. None of the other material has this logo. Had I known this, I would not have purchased this set. I must deduct one star for this desecreation of an otherwise great set."
