  • It seemed like nothing happened

    Lee Marvin is his usual commanding presence throughout, in a role which seems to have been written for him. But after a promising beginning the production seems to founder, as nothing much happens with the other characters and Dr Hyatt acts as portly overseer to this strangely stranded crew. By the time the revelation of the murderer's identity comes, it hardly seems to matter, since we haven't really found out enough about these people to care one way or the other. And Marvin's epiphany at the end comes off as abrupt and pat. Still, watching him toting around a shotgun and acting all nuts for an hour is a lot more entertainment than one is generally privy to. :) And there is also a rather amusing episode involving Jed Sills and Lee's fiancee on the stairs.
