I watched "Pushover" yesterday and was underwhelmed. Fred MacMurray seems flat / sleepy through most of it. I neither believe him as a cop nor as a cop going bad. His putative explanation speech, where he alludes to why he would become a crocked cop - which should have been a highlight - feels as if he is reading lines. And there is no, none, zero, zilch chemistry between Kim Novak and him. The scene where they meet (in her car) is painfully awkward. He doesn't even appear attracted to her (and he is supposed to be), which really shouldn't require much acting at all. That said, E.G. Marshall puts in his usual understatedly excellent performance and the movie does have some fun time-travel clothes, police technology, scenic aspects to it. Overall though, I was disappointed as the story doesn't work because MacMurray isn't convincing in his role.
