We are all doomed to die…a horrible death.
“Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze” adapts the fiction of Kenneth Robeson for the screen with engaging results. It’s a harmless, gloriously goofy throwback to 1930s era pulp nonsense. Clearly it’s NOT meant to be taken all that seriously, even though most of the cast do a fine job of maintaining poker faces (which is usually the right way to play this sort of material). It’s spirited, lively stuff, played to perfection by the talented actors and crew.
Ron Ely, star of the 1966-68 ‘Tarzan’ TV series, makes for an appealing hero as Doc Savage, a jack of all trades who goes on various globe trotting adventures with his team The Fabulous Five: Paul Gleason as Long Tom, William Lucking as Renny, Michael Miller as Monk, Eldon Quick as Johnny, and Darrell Zwerling as Ham. Each man has his own area of expertise, and they’re always ready to help out their friend Doc. Doc receives word that his father has died and left a precious natural resource to him, but also comes to believe that the old man may have been murdered. Our merry band of protagonists are soon doing battle with greedy, nefarious Captain Seas (Paul Wexler) and his minions.
Fans of the literature excoriate this movie as an adaptation, but it’s great fun if one doesn’t have that previous association. It’s often quite amusing, and is suitable for family audiences, if not particularly politically correct. The oddest but funniest touch: one of the villains, the sniveling Don Rubio Gorro (Bob Corso), sleeps in a constantly rocking crib, tucked into a fetal position! The Sousa march based music score is absolutely priceless, and it’s hard not to sing along with that theme.
Some of the principal creative talent are old pros at this sort of thing: George Pal (“The War of the Worlds” ’53, “The Time Machine” ’60) is producer and co-writer, and Michael Anderson (“Around the World in 80 Days”, “Logan’s Run”) is director. And the look for the picture is just right. It would have fit in just fine during the days of old time movie serials.
The acting is generally agreeable. Wexler is a delicious if not very threatening villain. Miller provides the most blatant comedy relief as the chemist who dotes on a pet piglet. Pamela Hensley (“Rollerball”, ‘Matt Houston’), Robyn Hilton (“Blazing Saddles”), and Janice Heiden provide appreciable eye candy. Appearing in bits are Michael Berryman (in his film debut) as a coroner and Robert Tessier as a henchman. And an unbilled Paul Frees is the narrator.
At the end there’s an advertisement for a sequel, although no sequel ever got made.
One of my favorite touches? Doc and Captain Seas implementing various fighting methods during their climactic showdown, with accompanying text on screen.
