Television’s Lost Classics Volume One: John Casssavetes 02/02/19


John Cassavetes springs forth as a major 1950s talent in these two ‘Primetime Special’ dramatic plays broadcast live on ABC and CBS. Crime in the Streets is the Reginald Rose classic directed by Sidney Lumet; No Right to Kill is a ‘culture for the masses’ adaptation of Crime and Punishment. Cassavetes’ co-stars are Robert Preston, Glenda Farrell, Terry Moore and Robert H. Harris. The restoration of original Kinescopes is quite good in HD, and the producers Sabucat includes a racy ten-minute blooper reel from The Defenders and The Nurses. On Blu-ray from VCI.
