The David Barrett Story
14 April 2016 | by MissClassicTVSee all my reviews

Reminiscent of Marlon Brando's look in A Streetcar Named Desire, David Janssen here has a couple of scenes in a very tight-fitting T-shirt. And just like Brando, Janssen oozes with confidence and masculinity.

Other than that, it's not a great show. David Janssen plays a college student with one more year to go. He gets a summer job working a farm. The owner is an over-protective father of a 17-year-old girl. She's very sheltered. Dad beats up anyone who shows interest in his daughter. David and Rosemary fall quickly in love. Dad objects. David fights for her. Dad tricks Rosemary and David. After David gets his million dollars, everything works out. It's not a great message.
