I saw no reason to review this "oldie" which did exceptionally well at the box of* fice and ought to silence the doubters who sometimes main' tain that only sex and violence may be seen on the screen. I don't often walk out on a movie but The Glass Bottomed Boat forced me out of the theatre before the first half was ov er. A more insiped, carelessly directed, poorly written and complete fiasco could scarcely be conceived. The dialog during the first half was so asinine that I combed thru the reveiew in the Motion Picture Herald to find who was responsible for such an atrocity and I came up with the name of Everett Freeman and I hereby administer to this gentle*man, a sharp slap on the wrist and advise him.that a more fertile field for his inept attempts would, be as writer tor .the TV commercials, which have already reached a new low. V '" • Going over the above mentioned review I note that the critic, one Richard Gertner, has given Glass Bottom Boat an "excellent" rating so I'll include him, along with, the writer,;*fpr my personal venom. A firiial word from, Time magazine, referring to Arthur Godfrey, who was also in this atrocity, "The old pro may believe that reminiscing is as good a way as any to buoy up the spirits aboard a doomed ship." TO COMPLETE my week of frustration, we come now to a double-feature, Don't Worry, We'll Come Up With A Title and Incident At Phantom Hill. I had hoped to see the latter, a run-of- the-mill western first, since almost a miracle can dim the lus- tre of even a mediocre cow-opera for me but no, disappointment again. Phantom came in second and I was forced to sit thru 90 minutes of the Don't Worry. Just off-hand the best, title I can suggest is just one word Lousy. Even though the Incident "f • m £ v m At Phantom Hill was somewhat' Mrs " Ohve corny and handicapped with a thread-bare plot, it was weltdone and exciting and even though the Herald review gave it a "fair" rating, it was head and shoulders above anything I've seen this far tal week. .... ' After 2 Mf hours of .steady viewing, I'm forced to admit that I missed the grand finale, since my endurance was completely exhausted. But I was again saved by the details from the review and I quote: "The. conclusion is a familiar one. Fuller, the hero, kills Duryea (the villian) and gets the gold and the girl (Jocelyn Lane), The latter is an ex-dance hall girl with the proverbial heart of gold. Who said that 'the role of the critic is a path of roses?
