The Dark Past
Cast and crew
|Screenwriter:||Philip MacDonald, Michael Blankfort, Albert Duffy|
|Cast:||Lee J Cobb
This is so tedious that I began to notice Lee J Cobb's hairpiece (he was bald from the age of 25) and wondering if he would fling it off in protest at the pop psychology platitudes he was forced to mouth. The film only comes to life after the opening voice-over when we see Holden and cohorts in the getaway car prior to the all-too predictable hostage situation. The recreation of the events that caused his recurring dream might nudge you awake again towards the end, but it's too little too late.
