Trivia

Studio publicity claimed actor Kamatari Fujiwara created the large kinetic sculpture, called "Yes" in the film, but the work was actually done by Robert Fields, a industrial design student at The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. The sculpture was set up on the ice rink of the Marina Towers apartment complex. See more »

Paranoia on the run in mid-60's!
10 July 2004 | by (sparks, nevada) – See all my reviews

This under-appreciated early film of Arthur Penn has been called a rip-off of European films, but it's much better than that. Penn and Beatty obviously formed a love/hate relationship before they made Bonnie and Clyde two years later, and this film is great! The perfect role for Beatty and a host of strange characters (who is that little guy?) and an offbeat performance by Francot Tone and a creepy one by Hurd Hatfield.

This film's reputation will rise in value over the years since Mickey is no longer alone on the American streets. Wonderful b/w cinematography and true American sensibility permeates every scene. Try to find this gem and you may be in for a surprise. A 9 out of 10! Best performance in film Beatty.
