Customer Reviews

The acting is good.
ARH
The chemistry works for the first WWII, 1944, POW camp murder story, as it does in this wrongful confinement situation.
Harold Wolf
Wounded Heart is one of my favorite romantic TV movies of all times.

This review is about "Against Her Will". Aparently Walter Mathau starred in a few TV movies in the 1990s about a lawyer back in the 1940s. This is the second movie in the series. In this movie he has moved from near a POW camp at Bremen, Colorado to Baltimore, Maryland. A federal judge, played by Harry Morgan, that drafted him to defend a German at the POW camp that had been accused of murder in the first movie "The Incident", now wants him as a partner in a law firm. Excellent acting, story, sets, and music make this well worth owning. In this movie, he must try to get a young woman out of a state mental hospital but the hospital and state don't want to let her out because of what she knows about their care. There are two other movies in this series, Incident and Incident In A Small Town. If you enjoyed this catch To Kill a Mockingbird (Collector's Edition).

In "Wounded Heart" a young successful New York stock trader must return to her home town to visit her father, played by Stuart Whittman, after a stroke. She has hated him for fifteen years after her parents split up. A revisit to the ranch in Texas rekindles some feelings and some new ones develop with her stepbrother. This concerns her fiance that rushes out to Texas to keep her from staying there. Meanwhile a cutthroat company is using any means possible to get her father off the ranch so they can build an elaborate modern shopping center. Reasonably decent romance/drama.

Against Her Will starring Walter Matthau was the third and final installment in the " Incident Series " and was as fantastic as the first and second. Anything he appears in I find always hold may attention.

The second part of the Double Feature was a movie called Wounded Heart.
This was truly awfull. The lead actress played by Paula Devicq had very little talent and appeared to play the role as if to say-- I am
pretty and that should be enough for any audience.
Unfortunately both shows are paired together.It is a shame they did not leave out "Wounded Heart" and just include another Walthau movie.

Against Her Will is a favorite. Matthau and Morgan were a great match for this series. The DVD version has a little more than the TV version had - like when Billie tells Harmon about her new job, and what happens after "Donald 2" phones Harmon. The DVD is presented in the "full screen" format, and has virtually no features (like subtitles, etc).

Wounded Heart is so bad that I won't even attempt to rate it. I can't imagine ever watching it again.

Another installment of the incident series. A young girl is being used as a guinea pig at a psychiatric clinic against her will. Judge Bell is totally against helping her but Cobb puts his foot down. It takes a lot of work but Mr. Cobb finds the proof he needs to help this girl.

Stars Walter Matthau (aged lawyer Cobb) and Harry Morgan (Judge Bell) team up again for a second part originating from the early 1990s but taking place in a filmed 1947 version of Baltimore. An astonishing well filmed, well acted, well written, story that is so riveting and emotionally captivating that you will never touch the pause button. The story takes on the 1940s understandings of mental illness and institutions of that period. It's not a light subject but it is professionally produced drama that could almost serve as a documentary of misunderstandings of the times.

Matthau and Morgan have become a team, first doing "The Incident" (read my recent 5-star review). The are as perfect together as the odd couple, the Marx's Brothers, or Dorothy & Toto. They seem to naturally fit together. The chemistry works for the first WWII, 1944, POW camp murder story, as it does in this wrongful confinement situation. Both are SO MUCH MORE than crime, courtroom, and police drama. They are emotional family situational drama. The complexity of plot vs characters reminds me of Harry Morgan's days in MASH. Oh, if we only had as many Matthau/Morgan period dramas as we have MASH episodes with Col. Potter.

Matthau is apparently supposed to be the main star, but the duo is so closely related in the story that Leading Actor requires both their names. Susan Blakely returns as Billie and is equally responsible for the high standard of work shown in this series.

Why this trilogy has not been put into a single set astounds me. I bought all 3. I award 5 stars for all 3 dramas. The third, "Incident in a Small Town" takes place in Cook Co., IL, in 1953. Check out my review of that also--under the 5 star group. Get them all. Watch them in order and enjoy some really well presented American 1940-50s period legal drama. Your senses will be touched as well as your emotions.
