It’s time to revisit Convicts 4 (1962), aka Reprieve, directed by Millard Kaufman. Genial convict Nick welcomes his old pal John Resko (Ben Gazzara) to The Hill.
Timothy’s teeth-clenching pseudo-Kirk Douglas delivery really gets a workout here. Keep your eyes open also for a fleeting appearance by the supremely creepy Reggie Nalder. As we all know, Tim and Gazzara met up again in The Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976).
