Video of the Week: “Unwed Mother”

Our video for this week is the trailer for Walter Doniger’s Unwed Mother (1958), a cautionary tale to be sure… Tim appears as the grumpy abortion doctor who looks and sounds like he just stumbled in from an all-night bender. Thanks Doc, I have complete confidence in you.

This was Tim’s first film appearance after Paths of Glory. That is slightly akin to going from Citizen Kane to Plan 9 From Outer Space. Yikes. No doubt appearing in a “controversial” film like this helped fuel his desire to make a film that was truly controversial. And so The World’s Greatest Sinner was born.
