Weak Script, Poor Acting
Hamper 'Never Too Late'

TOP SEVEN PER CENT OF CLASS:
Freshmen Awarded Scholarship Prize

by SAMUEL GOLDSTEIN 7
At the State Theatre
Despite its' faults, "Never Too
Late" is. a very funny picture.
Based on Sumner Long's Broad-
way success, it focuses on the do-
mestic complications arising out
of the pregnancy of a middle-aged
Woman.
Because her husband (Paul
Ford) forces his daughter (Con-
nie Stevens) to do all the house-
work, she attempts to get preg-
nant and succeeds in wearing out
her husband (Jim Hutton).
This is the pivot point in the
movie. After numerous arguments
and embarrassing situations, all
ends happily. Ford and his wife
go to Boston for a second honey-
moon, and 'Stevens and .Hutton
decide to move into their own
home.
Some credit for the success of
"Never Too Late" must go to di-

rector Bud Yorkin who has direct-
ed with a mixture of restraint and
buoyancy. His camera moves and
cuts just enough and, unlike Rich-
ard Lester in "The Knack," he has
not buried thin material under an
avalanche of photographic gim-
mickry.
Main credit, however, must go to
Ford, Hutton, and Lloyd Nolan,
who plays the mayor. Both Ford
and Hutton have the same un-
canny ability to shift gracefully
from one position of comic awk-
wardness to another. The physi-
cal aspects of their performances
are just as impressive as their line
readings.
As the blustering bewildered
husband, Ford is perfect. Even if
he sometimes over-acts, he wrings
from the part as much humor as
is possible. Jim Hutton is a fine
complement to Ford as the smart,
dazed, weak son-in-law, while
Lloyd Nolan attacks the part of
the mayor with such relish that
he creates a character where none
existed in the script.
There is still a lot wrong with
"Never too Late." The jokes on
sex are stale. The situations are
unimaginative. Whenever Bud
Yorkin cannot get laughs in any
other way, he has his performers
mug and their facial contortions
look more mechanical than spon-
taneous.
The dialogue is neither funny
nor believable. One overdone ir-
relevant reaction after another is
piled onto the actors, who often
substitute energy for technique.
There are also three bad per-
formances. Henry Jones is mis-
cast as a kindly doctor, missing
the acerbity which has given his
previous characterizations depth.
Connie Stevens over and under-
acts as the daughter and Maureen
O'Sullivan makes the usual mis-
take of transporting to the screen
the overt postures and responses
of a stage performance.
Nevertheless, a weak script and
some poor acting have not proven
detrimental to "Never Too Late."
Experienced light direction and
three fine performances have sav-
ed this film from a near fatality.
