Rivals ★½ Deadly Rivals 1972 (R)

Shallow, unconvincing drama about a stepfather challenged by his stepson, who wants to kill this new contender for his mother's love. Nice handling of cast credits, but other details—like acting, directing and photography—leave much to be desired. 103m/C VHS . Robert Klein, Joan Hackett, Scott Jacoby; D: Krishna Shah.
