Incongruous, unlovable, post-Vietnam:
a weatherman and a reporter make the Minnesota TV newsroom hummm. Dixie
Quinn locks into the weather and doesn’t let go. Rick Beanblossom, burn-victim,
works behind the scenes, behind his mask. Their curious, uneven characterizations
are ambushed midway by a grim, hopeless plot.
Quotes: “Y’all take care now” (The weatherman’s last words)
