An Enemy of the People
Steve McQueen ("The Getaway," "Bullitt") stars as an idealistic, small-town doctor who discovers that the local hot springs, which the townsfolk market for their "medicinal" effects to drive up tourism, are polluted by runoff from the local tanning mill. The town leaders fear that the cost of cleaning up the toxic waste, and the resultant drop in tourism if the news got out, would hurt the town, so it becomes up to the doctor to spearhead the battle and protect the town's land and residents. Co-starring Academy Award-nominee Charles Durning (TV's "Evening Shade," "Tootsie"), Bibi Andersson ("Persona," "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden") and Richard Dysart (TV's "L.A. Law," "War and Rememberance"). From the Henrik Ibsen play, and adapted by Pulitzer Prize-winner Arthur Miller ("Death of a Salesman," "The Crucible").
Soldier in the Rain
His own soda pop machine. Air conditioning. The finest cotton underwear. Someone else doing the work. That’s M/Sgt. Maxwell Slaughter’s (Jackie Gleason) game – and man, can he play it. Just ask Supply Sgt. Eustis Clay (Steve McQueen), who idolizes the big, shrewd, supremely self-confident older man. Maybe someday they can go into business together. In the meantime, how about a hot double date? So Clay fixes Slaughter up with a teenybopper named Bobby Jo (Tuesday Weld), a move that sets off a chain reaction of laughs and drama. Gleason and McQueen make a surprisingly engaging comedy team in this overlooked gem (co-scripted by Blake Edwards, who at this time was also embarking on The Pink Panther movie series) that showcases both stars’ unique talents.
