"Triangle" is an obscure title, but it's one of my favorite films. It might even make my top ten list, if i were ever to compile one. The film is what Richard Wagner might call a gezamkunstwerk, a work of art that coheres, that is all of a piece. The acting, story, art direction, cinematography, and music all combine to make "Triangle" a (neglected) gem. TIffany Bolling has star power, even though her performance is kind of "raw." She was/is an underrated actress/star. With a little promotion, she could have been the Angelina Jolie of her day, but it was not to be. The film IS a triangle drama. Tiffany's Sharon McClure is lusted after by Carlo di Fermi (Ray Danton), a (bisexual) teacher at her school. But Sharon is chasing after ANOTHER of her teachers, Todd Pierson (Charles Knox Robinson). To make matters worse, Carlo wants to make Todd into his OWN sexual plaything. So we have a triangle with two pivots, two objects of desire. The story may sound banal to some, but the film is well written. The dialogue is intelligent without being overly precious or literary. But most of the credit for the film's success should go to director Ned Glasser, who provided the overall vision and "orchestrated" the efforts of the technical staff. As i indicated earlier, the art direction is superb. I would call the visual style "airbrushed realism." It's based on a somewhat idealized version of the type of decor common in middle class American homes and offices during the sixties. (Thus, the film visually resembles an episode of the latter day "Dragnet" series.") The art director and cinematographer are to be commended for helping to bring off this design coup. Last but not least, the music really adds to the film's charm. It's schmaltzy and repetitive, for sure. Composer Raoul Kraushaar hits upon a tasty riff and then proceeds to nail it into the wall. Yet this monotonous musical motif helps to unify the picture, along with the stylized set design and photography. "Triangle" is a happy accident. It's isn't a high concept product or a flashy star vehicle. It's merely an example of meat-and-potatoes film making that somehow "caught fire." An example of talent and professionalism in various aspects of motion picture craftsmanship coming together to create a minor masterpiece.
