Sam Fuller please
31 March 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

The story it self is not so terrific, I admit, it looks like an expose and a topic already seen a billion times before but, folks, this is a Samuel Fuller's episode, a rare one, because this great director made a few stuff for the TV industry. So, only because it is directed by him, please watch it. The opening with the crazy truck is terrific. And the cast is worth too; Julie Adams, Bill Bendix... I don't need more. Such a shame that I got a bad copy. You have here the quality of a real genuine big screen movie. It doesn't look like a TV stuff. Not at all. Such a shame too that he did not make anything more for the TV. This would have probably been great.
