#88: FIVE GOLDEN HOURS (1961)
When George Sanders made his next film it was a wild and woolly comedy with Ernie Kovacs. It had been a while since George had appeared in a more humorous story, and he enjoyed the chance to clown around on the set with Kovacs. Their costar was lovely Cyd Charisse, cast as a black widow who with George's help lures wealthy Kovacs into her web. But before that happens, the men spend time at an insane asylum where they are both feigning madness for one reason or the other. The plot did not make a whole lot of sense, but then it wasn't supposed to. It was just supposed to make audiences forget their own troubles-- which explains why the Columbia production was a hit and Kovacs called it one of his best.
