Saw a TCM interview with Sydney Pollack. Good interview. Talked about a lot but veered at one point into his early acting. Showed a clip from Alfred Hithcock Presents- The Contest for Aaron Gold. These sketches are from watching that segment on Youtube. Netflix streaming stops at seasoon 3. This was from season 6. He was one skinny, wiry guy. The other sketch up top is the other actor.
There was a great device in the story. Pollack's adversary in the story is the swimming coach. Who is shown once, extreme long shot, making a high dive. We have no details about what he really looks like, sounds or anything. It's up to our imagination to create the intimidating picture.
