The Oblong Box Review


Terrible
The oblong box is of course a casket, but who's inside? Unfortunately I stopped caring about 15 minutes into this overheated and poorly constructed horror miss, an awfully vapid something or other about human experimentation and strange family relations. A real low point for Price and Lee.

The Spy Who Came In From The Cold Review


Very Good
For those who like their spy thrillers convoluted, talky, and depressing, John Le Carre's The Spy Who Came In from the Cold sticks James Bond in the belly with a sucker punch. Sad and chilly, the story gives us Richard Burton as an aging British spy who reluctantly semi-retires to work in a library, where he meets a communist gal (Claire Bloom) he fancies. He picks up a final job -- defect to East Germany, but not really; the job is to feed the communists misinformation. Or is he serious? What about the girl? The Berlin Wall makes for an ominous and chilling symbol, a reminder of our Cold War heritage. Burton and Oskar Werner (who plays his nemesis) earned various acting nominations.
