Editorial Reviews

Actors: Robert Vaughn, Norma Moore, Diana Darrin, Billie Bird, Jeanne Cooper, Ron Hargrave, Jennifer West, Richard Evans, Warren Parker, Ralph Manza, Jack Nicholson. Our first feature: Unwed Mother – Betty (Norma Moore) moves from a farming community to Los Angeles. She falls into the clutches of a super-cad (Robert Vaughn) and ends up abandoned and pregnant. After visiting a drunken abortionist, she decides to give the baby up for adoption … but has a change of heart. The climax is a classic of melodrama from a master of melodrama, Walter Doniger, director of TV's "Peyton Place." The second feature Too Soon To Love is about two teenage lovers from dysfunctional families that go "all the way." She becomes in the family way, flees from a wicked abortionist and later attempts suicide. He steals money to retain a "real" doctor! This classic teenage melodrama was the directorial debut of Richard Rush ("The Stuntman").

I was expecting exploitation films, but these are well-made dramas, and it is nice to see 50's B movies that are so sharp and clear...widescreen, too. Robert Vaughn is a wonderful cad. Interesting commentary track by Robert Justman who was assistant director on the movie. Of course, he went on to to Star Trek fame, and tends to talk more about S.T. than "Unwed Mother." That's fine by me.

"Too Soon to Love" has been artificially stretched from a full frame print then matted to simulate widescreen. Faces are squished (short and fat). On top of that, it is still pan and scanned. I could not watch more than 5 minutes. "Unwed Mother" is watchable, but it is a matted presentation of a full frame print. Chins and foreheads are frequently chopped off by the matting. Absolutely horrible DVD presentation from VCI.

Norma Moore and Robert Vaughn do fine considering the material they have to work with in Unwed Mother, that is, if you can believe TV's handsome hero in "Man From Uncle" is well cast as a thief/gigilo father of the baby. He's just not mean enough to be "smearing" every sweet young thing he touches like his landlady says. The theme song is a bit corny even for 1960. Robert resorts to robbing a movie theatre to pay back the salary our girl in trouble loans him (a forgivable crime at 2008 prices!)The second half of the film improves where we finally discover Moore is pregnant and must live in a home for other single moms on probation. She won't give up her baby even then..but couldn't the older couple adopt both her and the baby? Extras subtract from a badly miscast film when Bob Justman uses all his time to talk about Patrick Stewart in Star Trek.
