Not Bad.
5 July 2010 | by (denver, colorado) – See all my reviews

Although this isn't a great movie, or even a very good one, it holds your attention in a very intriguing way.

The acting is pretty bad, the dialogue is bad, but every time I was about to stop watching it the plot took another little twist and kept me interested.

I am a big fan of film noir and although 1961 is a little late for noir this did some nice things with the form.

It would have made a better play than a movie. A little more character development, some better dialogue, and it could have worked much better.
