Did You Know?

Goofs

When the police are chasing Tony Van Dyne and his gang the scenes where Tony is shooting at the police show the internal car scenes for Tony's car as having rounded rear and side windows. The exterior chase scenes show Tony's car as having square rear and side windows. This is probably because this film used recycled action footage from the film 'Public Enemy's Wife (1936) , of which Bullets for O'Hara is a remake. See more »

Saying the words
8 June 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Anthony Hopkins tells the story of working with Katherine Hepburn on A LION IN WINTER, how she said "Don't speak the line, just say it." In this largely uninteresting second feature -- or third feature, we see evidence that advice is good advice. Almost everyone speaks their lines portentously, in an effort to give them weight and importance. Only third-billed Anthony Quinn just says his lines, as if they had just occurred to him, and he is present in the moment and much more intelligent in presentation than everyone else. He steals the show from first-billed Joan Perry and eponymous, second-billed Roger Pryor.

I cannot recommend this movie particularly, but if you feel a need to see it, you'll enjoy it for Quinn.
