Trivia

A host of production problems, including financing, location and personnel issues, caused filming to be stopped several times, resulting in at least four different directors - regardless of their experience in musical comedies - working on the project at various times. One director, Ray Nazarro, specialized almost exclusively in "B" westerns and cheap hillbilly musicals for Columbia, and was hired because he just happened to be in Europe when a director was needed. Producer Albert Zugsmith also directed some scenes in the periods between when one director left and another was hired. See more »

Underrated Sixties Noir
23 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

All of the critical scorn directed at Dog Eat Dog is rather perplexing, since it's a tense, starkly photographed, bleak and sleazy shot of cool 60s crime melodrama.

Dog Eat Dog is similar in its strange look and feel to Roman Polanski's Cul-de-Sac (there's even a bald creep who resembles Donald Pleasence), but with a more straightforward hard boiled edge and noirish dialogue, with Cameron Mitchell cynically dubbing Jayne Mansfield's breasts her "double indemnity".

Shot in beautiful locations and full of interesting, unusual faces, this is a crazy winner that ought to please fans of Mitchell, Mansfield, or offbeat genre films and black comedies generally. Mitchell even gets to go nuts and tear apart a whorehouse, yelling incoherently about money and gasoline. Really, what could be better?
