Reviews
Mine: A couple of good moments, do not a movie make. Great to see Kirk Douglas, but bad characters and a stupid story.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Venal family can't wait for a crotchety uncle to die, so they can get their hands on his money, but when he threatens to give it all to a sexy young companion, they dig up long-estranged nephew Fox. Naming the family McTeague (after von Stroheim's GREED) is the cleverest thing in Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel's wearisome script--which isn't helped by Lynn's slack-paced direction. (The director also appears as Kirk's put-upon butler. ) Based, believe it or not, on Charles Dickens' Martin Chuzzlewit.
