OLIVER REED AND GLENDA JACKSON IN 'THE TRIPLE ECHO'

Title: THE TRIPLE ECHO Year: 1972 Rating: ****

In any movie where a man has to dress up like a woman, for whatever reason, there's the one genuine manly male who wants to give that so-called female a test ride wherein the truth will be discovered... 

So when it's stocky firebrand Oliver Reed as a World War II era tank sergeant, lusting after a deserted soldier hiding out in widowed Glenda Jackson's rural chicken farm while (romancing her and) posing as his sister, this otherwise searing romantic drama turns into a heated thriller...

That's because Reed (reunited with his WOMEN IN LOVE co-star Jackson yet sharing more scenes opposite fitfully feminine/literal pretty boy Brian Deacon) is like a bomb ready to explode: in more ways than one... 

And he's never been so frightening and formidable, also providing Michael Apted's THE TRIPLE ECHO a sense of horror and homoerotic exploitation in a bizarre curio that, while predictable, you'll have to squirm through till the end.
