Larry Karaszewski on

All Fall Down

Released 1962
Distributor MGM

Live television director John Frankenheimer’s third theatrical feature is based on James Leo Herlihy’s dysfunctional family novel. This led directly into Frankenheimer’s amazing run of five consecutive ’60s masterpieces beginning with Birdman of Alcatraz and ending with Seconds. Warren Beatty, only five roles away from Bonnie and Clyde, makes a strong impression.
