Just okay

"Face of Danger" is a decent show on its own. However, compared to the many wonderful episodes of "Four Star Theater", it comes up a bit short. Much of this is due to unsympathetic characters.

The film begins with a reporter (William Schallert) coming to interview a very elderly lady (Ida Lupino in heavy makeup) about her exciting past—growing up in the Old West. However, the old lady's family insists that Grandma lived a good and upright life—and Grandma thinks back to her REAL past—a past that involved her having an affair with an outlaw. Then, through the magic of television, we see Grandma when she was a semi-young lady—just arrived in the West and full of spunk. And, not surprisingly, she quickly falls madly in love with a killer. We have little understanding why other than she craved excitement.

The problem with the show I mentioned above—the characters were unsympathetic. If the boyfriend had some reason to like him or to justify his killings, it might have worked better. However, he was just a wicked jerk and she loved him. Well acted and produced but nothing more.
