  • "The Bully"

    8.5
    At the time this script was written, the ubiquitous "school bully" was ever ready to pounce on vulnerable youngsters to provoke a fist fight. Velvet (Lori Martin) sets about to help her friend, John (Rickey Kelman), when he is continually punched by the school's resident smart aleck, Alvie (Richard Correll), but peace is only restored after the victim is given boxing lessons by Mi (Jimmy McCallion). Good performances by everyone in the truly fine cast bring the script to life, reminding viewers of challenges too often faced by young people.moreless

    • This show is in color. Opening credits are still black and white and then moves to color. It does not mention which type of color process was used. My copy is faded. The Library of Congress lists 4 other shows in color, The Prize, Teddy's Examine, The Colt and The Grudge Match. I believe that to be a mistake and that only one show is in color. Not listed in the credits is the very young BEAU BRIDGES.
