Movie-TV bullet

Blacklight Bar

U.M.C.
1969
100 min.
James Daly, Richard Bradford, Maurice Evans, Kevin McCarthy, Shelley Fabares, William Windom, J.D. Cannon, Edward G.
Robinson. Directed by Boris Sagal.
Excellent cast in a moderately effective behind-the-scenes drama of a university medical center; script and subplots
strictly formula. Pilot for the MEDICAL CENTER TV series; average. Retitled OPERATION HEARTBEAT.

THE ULTIMATE IMPOSTER
1979
97 min.
Joseph Hacker, Keith Andes, Erin Gray, Tracy Brooks Swope, Bobby Riggs. Directed by Paul Stanley.
A computer-age secret agent, using the latest gadgetry, sets out to help a Russian submarine commander defect. A silly
premise that ended up as a busted series pilot. Below average.

AN UNCOMMON LOVE
1983
100 min.
Barry Bostwick, Kathryn Harrold, Ed Begley, Jr., Cyril O'Reilly, Allison Argo, Phillip R. Allen. Directed by Steven
Hillard Stern.
He's a college professor, she's in his marine biology class. They fall in love but he soon learns she's working her way
through school turning tricks in a message parlor. Now that's uncommon, but will their thing survive? Tune in next week.
Below average.

UNCOMMON VALOR
1983
100 min.
Mitchell Ryan, Ben Murphy, Rick Lowman, Barbara Parkins, Norman Fell, Gregory Sierra, John Reilly, Salome Jens, Julie
Cobb, Belinda Montgomery. Directed by Rod Amateau.
A hospital is torched, but the actors lack any spark in this pedestrian series pilot that fizzled. Below average.

THE UNDERGROUND MAN
1974
100 min.
Peter Graves, Jack Klugman, Judith Anderson, Celeste Holm, Jo Ann Pflug, Vera Miles, Kay Lenz, Jim Hutton, Sharon
Farrell. Directed by Paul Wendkos.
Standard mystery-drama, with Graves as Ross MacDonald's private eye Lew Archer, searching for the kidnapped son of an
old girlfriend, and finding a tangled web of infidelity, long-hidden murder, and other standard elements. Below average.

THE UNFINISHED JOURNEY OF ROBERT KENNEDY
1969
75 min.
Directed by Mel Stuart.
This excellent David Wolper documentary narrated by John Huston mixes a survey of his political career and interviews
on his private life. Above average.

UNWED FATHER
1974
78 min.
Joseph Bottoms, Kay Lenz, Joseph Campanella, Kim Hunter, Beverly Garland, William H. Bassett. Directed by Jeremy Paul
Kagan.
Bottoms is a high-school teacher battling to gain custody of his illegitimate baby. An unconvincing socal drama
additionally crippled by weak performances. Below average.

THE USERS
1978
125 min.
Jaclyn Smith, Tony Curtis, Joan Fontaine, Red Buttons, George Hamilton, John Forsythe, Darren McGavin, Michelle
Phillips. Directed by Joseph Hardy.
A smalltown girl with a dark past masterminds a fading film star's comeback. It's Hollywood at its most deliciously
decadent in this lavishly appointed adaptation of Joyce Haber's thinly veiled roman a clef. Average.
