Which. One Is Rhodes and Which One Is Rex? Does It Matter?
11 November 2016 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This was only interesting because it has loads of character actors in it. We have one of the Reasons (can't tell them apart), Cloris Leachmann, and a host of people who routinely showed up on 60's television. I loved the crazy guy. I remember him from an episode of the original Star Trek when the guys found themselves in Tombstone, fighting the Earp Brothers. The plot is a bit silly. The young woman, who appears to be the winner of the Elizabeth Taylor look-alike contest, is put in a terrible position. Her husband is trying to be so secretive but he can't keep his mouth shut and is overheard by Grandma Walton, who begins a little extortion business. I'm never quite sure what the bad guys are up to, but Rhodes (not the scholar), but a Reason, has evidence concerning and needs to go off to Mexico. His wife can't go along because there isn't room at the house, so she has to stay with his sociopath relatives. When you hear the plot they propose to get her to reveal her secret, you will have trouble suppressing your laughter. This has the most convenient of conclusions which really diminishes the whole thing. I remember the advice a writing teacher once gave. When a bad guy has a character trapped and you need to end your story, have him run over by a truck.
