Cold Night's Death, A

Tagged: Film

Made-for-tv film (1973). Spelling Goldberg/ABC. Directed by Jerrold Freedman. Teleplay Christopher Knopf. Cast includes Robert Culp and Eli Wallach. 73 minutes. Colour.

Interesting, atmospheric but ponderous yarn with a bizarre premise about two quarrelsome scientists, one emotional (Wallach) and one dispassionately rational (Culp), in a remote Arctic station. Their experimental chimpanzees (see Apes as Human) turn the tables and start conducting stress tests on the scientists themselves. [PN]
