Faster Than A Speeding Bullet
24 April 2003 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

This movie was on TCM the other nite and it was great to watch, even tho I had never heard of it before. For the longest amount of time Sanders & Co. were shot in front of a bunch of static sets supposedly city streets, including one that I guess in France, all pretty cheap, but really got the job done. Sanders did not have to stretch very much to be a bastard and he is responsible for ruining a bunch of people's lives as well as causing a number of deaths . . . but hey, this is why we watch Mr. Addison DeWitt! The movie is rife with coincidence and a good melodrama, and you will find yourself hoping that more suckers will fall for George's con games.
