Drab, lifeless piece

The July 29 1959 edition of the Toronto Daily Star featured this less than favourable review of the film The Hangman:


This review and this movie are only interesting because they featured Tina Louise, who went on to fame as Ginger in Gilligan’s Island. She is now 84, and is one of two cast members of that show who is still alive (the other is Dawn Wells, who played Marianne).

Wikipedia has a brief entry for The Hangman. Rotten Tomatoes doesn’t have enough critical reviews to give it a rating.

I could find nothing on Ron Johnson, the theatre critic that panned this movie and Ms. Louise. It doesn’t help that he has such a common name.
