This is a TV version of the Gloria Swanson film. The film is memorable,
yes, but its real message is ugly. The story here is the same, but on a
smaller budget and more confined. The writer is over thirty, but no one
thinks anything of his pursuit of the script writer girl in her early
twenties. The legendary film actress has hit fifty. Is there some
reason she can't look at the younger man the way the man looks at a
younger girl? The director with whom the actress once worked is older
than the actress, but he's still working, and quite successfully.
Why shouldn't the actress continue her career? Why shouldn't she pursue
younger love interests? The message in this story seems to be that only
men are allowed to do those things. Making the actress "crazy" seemed a
convenient way to mask the ageism and sexism that are the real message
of this film.
This particular adaptation works just fine. I saw the film first, so I
cannot say if the story would have struck me as hard had I only seen
this. Darren McGavin was good in everything he ever did. He has the
same cocky attitude as his Kolchak character did later on. Sadly, Mary
Astor's drinking showed on her face. She was not the same woman that
Jack Barrymore and Ronald Colman were hoping to marry. Gloria Swanson
had aged better, despite actually being maybe a year older than Mary
when she did her film version, and Gloria's version seems all the more
ageist as a result. Mary just seems washed up and sad.
I'm not sure what the point was of remaking this. Of course, in the 50s
people didn't have the luxury of owning their favorite movies on home
copies, so maybe it was fun to see the story again. This version is not
bad, but it doesn't improve on or add to the original film in any way,
and that's why I gave it only a 6. Also, you don't get to see the
amazing car. It's just referred to.
