How Awful About Allan

Today is the anniversary of the death in 2007 of director Curtis Harrington. I've seen his film Voyage to the Prehistoric Planet. He also directed How Awful About Allan, starring Anthony Perkins, Julie Harris and Bill Erwin (who has a Star Trek connection), in 1970 for TV.

It is available at the Internet Archive:


1000 Misspent Hours closes saying,
How Awful About Allan is technically quite well-made— especially for a TV movie— and both Anthony Perkins and Julie Harris give highly effective performances, but none of that can prevent the film from feeling like it’s misplaced its point somewhere.
