"The Power" has a good cast. Should be interesting.
It was run this past week as well. I recorded it.
I'm not sure I'd call the cast "good". It's definitely weird, though - like they got a whole slew of 60's tv actors that had been in every series of that decade at some point; some almost stars but never quite made it on a permanent basis; some at the very end of being relevant actors even on tv.
But all with recognized names from all that tv exposure.
I watched the first 20 minutes - I'll finish it up sometime - but got the impression of a made-for-tv b-grader, just like all the actors in it.
The headliners: George Hamilton, Suzanne Pleshette. Hamilton peaked in '64 when he starred as Hank Williams in 'Your Cheatin' Heart'. Everything after that was pretty darn ordinary. In this role he has no charm whatsoever for the first 20 minutes I caught. Pleshette is at the prettiest she ever was in all her career in this movie. Yet, as always, she's sexless somehow.
And the rest: Earl Holliman, Gary Merrill, Yvonne De Carlo, Richard Carlson, Barbara Nichols, Nehemiah Persoff, Arthur O'Connell, Michael Rennie, Aldo Ray, Ken Murray, Miiko Taka, Vaughn Taylor, and Star Trek fanatics would've recognized this one - Lawrence Montaigne - who once played a Vulcan.
Except for Pleshette, who would go on to fame as Emily on 'The Bob Newhart Show' - and Hamilton, who would gain fame for being tanned - this was pretty much an end of the road outing for all these poor b-graders.
