The residents of Thompsonville
15 February 2016 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Sad to say a lot of good players were wasted with this one in a story that really didn't make a whole lot of sense. Ricardo Montalban guest stars as a movie stuntman with a hair trigger temper that the wife of director Jerome Thor has a big old yen for. Seems like an easy enough problem for Thor and his producer brother Norman Fell to solve. Just don't work with the guy and of course they will find out that wife Pamela Curran will have a yen for whoever is near.

But Thor wants to ruin him and is counting on Montalban's temper to do it. After firing him as a stuntman they hire him as a location manager for their new picture and some of it to be shot in an old western town called Thompsonville. It's inhabited by a lot of Deliverance like folks with warped old woman Betty Garde running the show and a half wit played by Martin Landau who likes to show off his new knife. They keep trying to press his buttons and his friend Anthony George from Checkmate is looking to find what's going on with these folks.

This story didn't get me at all. A real waste of time for all involved.
