YMMV: The Front
  • Acceptable Political Targets: A daring indictment of the Hollywood blacklist, a scant 16 years after it ceased to be respected altogether.
  • Despair Event Horizon: It's depressing to watch Hecky disintegrate, Driven to Suicide.
    Hecky: That girl you're with. What's her name?
    Howard: Florence.
    Hecky: (manic) A troublemaker. I heard her talking on the set. Subversive. She's a red. You like that girl?
    Howard: Yes, I like her.
    Hecky: Her name? Her full name.
  • He Really Can Act: Many of his non-fans (and even some of his admirers) have this reaction to Allen's performance. It was his most dramatic role to date, and he played it with gravity and depth.
    • Ditto for Zero Mostel.
