Excellent Film
23 February 2006 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a fine noir film, made even better by an exceptional cast, particularly Robert Culp. The writing, directing, and acting are well-done, and the Mardi Gras background is a great way to end it. Culp has always been one of my favorite actors, so I would love to see this again. It's a crying shame that films like this are not available on DVD, especially since so many lousy movies are. Any movie featuring Robert Culp is worth having.

The supporting cast is great, too...Edmond O'Brian, Vera Miles, Brenda Scott, Pat Buttram, Edger Bergen, and Randy Boone give fine performances. Don Siegel directs the feature, and he's also one of my favorite directors. It's also nice to hear the hit song, Girl From Ipanema in the soundtrack. Everything jells in this great gangster noir movie.

Someone please put this movie out on DVD!
