Trivia

Ray Nazarro is credited as director in official Italian and UK records, because it was not changed when the Production company sold the project. He did not start filming, and his name was not credited on screen: the German version was credited to Gustav Gavrin, and the English dubbed version, with a different cut and shorter, was credited to Richard E. Cunha. See more »

Mediterranean getaway...
9 June 2002 | by See all my reviews

"Dog Eat Dog" follows the backstabbing adventures of a group of thieves. This black and white, foreign production, is probably most notable for the presence of Jayne Mansfield. Her character, "Darlene" is a member of a three member criminal gang. She is both fond of money, clean underwear, and using the expression "crackers".

Cameron Mitchell is the second member of the group, who is nearly dealt out of the game by the third (Ivor Salter). Mistrustful, but still bound by the money, the group takes to the sea to make their getaway, trailed by an opportunistic hotel manger (Aldo Carmada). Stopping at an island, they encounter a strange group in residency there. Greed and madness lead to murder. And the money becomes a ridiculous fashion accessory.

Not a great deal of depth, to this B movie, but OK for some late evening intrigue and suspense.
