Ever Ready Steady Eddie

Papa was a preacher and I went to college to become one also . . . . But a few months before I was to leave school and become a pastor I knew that my path in life would not be like my father's, and I walked away from it, with no idea what I did want to do with my life. The next thirty years were spent wandering restlessly from job to job, never finding one that was able to wake me before the alarm went off and keep my interest until far past quitting time. It wasn't until the internet was created and I learned how to use it that I finally found a passion that would wake me before the alarm goes off and keep me interested and excited all day . . . . . In this story about a man and his job, Ernest Borgnine is Eddie Colt. Eddie has a wife, a young son, and a career as a draftsman for a large construction company that he hopes to keep until his final working days. It is 1959 and World War II is a distant memory and the whole world is prospering and growing. Eddie, his wife and young son have gone on holiday . . . . Eddie's first vacation in several years. The work has been so hectic that he has not been able to get away. Now he is tramping the countryside with his young son with a rabbit trap that he has made. The plan is to catch a rabbit to befriend while they are at the cabin in Deep Springs, so Eddie and son find just the right spot to put the trap before they return to the cabin. Back home at the construction company the boss has had another emergency change for the tall office building that he is building, and he must have Eddie back immediately to make the changes to the blueprints, or else everything will come to a grinding halt. Eddie's younger sister Judy is the boss' secretary, and she tries to convince the boss that she has no idea where Eddie has gone, but eventually Eddie gets the message that he must return immediately. Judy, the boss' secretary is played by June Blair, who was the Playboy magazine centerfold girl for January 1957, and when this movie was filmed she was the wife of David Nelson, of Ozzie and Harriet television show fame. Steady and reliable Eddie cuts his vacation short and heads home, and by doing so he creates a crisis for his little boy. They have left a rabbit trap in the remote wilderness and will not be back to get the rabbit out of the trap . . . . The rabbit will die if they do not return. Eddie's boss explains that one rabbit in the forest isn't terribly important, and he will buy Eddie's boy all the rabbits he could want, but that isn't the point. For Eddie's son it is about the value of life – even the life of a rabbit. Eddie is divided between his loyalty to his boss and the career that provides for his family, and the picture that he is painting for his son about values of life and death. The question becomes even tougher when the boss gives Eddie the promotion that will put him on easy street, and allow him to care for his family even better than before. A rabbit in a cage . . . . His career . . . . Then the boss does something that makes Eddie realize that he is the rabbit in a cage, unable to leave that cage called 'work' . . . . Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
