Daddy, I Don't Like It Like This

boy burt aldrich gang

(CBS, 7/12/1978, 120 mins). The unfulfilled dreams of his parents and the tensions created at home cause life to become a nightmare for a youngster who seeks release in a withdrawal to his own world. Gruff actor Burt Young (an Oscar nominee for “Rocky”) wrote the story with a starring role for himself, and Adell Aldrich, the daughter of director Robert Aldrich, made her TV directing debut here. Look for future Hollywood star Melanie Griffith in a tiny role.
