Kick-Back Friday: #34

Kick-Back Friday: #34


Good and campy, Dangerous Crossing features an interesting mix of actors whose careers, characteristic of the early 1950s, straddled the motion-picture and television industries. Twenty-eight-year-old Jeanne Crain (State Fair), a little long in the tooth by then-Hollywood standards, doubts her sanity when her new husband, played by Carl Betz (“The Donna Reed Show,” “Judd for the Defense”), goes missing on their honeymoon cruise. The ship’s doctor, Michael Rennie (The Day the Earth Stood Still), tries to sort it all out.

Don’t spend a whole lot of thought on this one.
