Realistic private eye.."I'll handle this case Bogey"
I saw this film as New Face In Hell when it was first released and enjoyed it, in fact I saw it over 10 times I thought it was that good. I remember it was very realistic especially in it's depiction of violence. The scene were he gets beaten up in a gay bar and manages to get to the juke box and play an all American record was very daring particularly here in Britain. I thought that George Peppard made an excellent private eye, cleaning up someone else's crap, I think he compares very well with Humphrey Bogart. I haven't seen the film for years and doubt very much if it will ever be shown in it's original release form here in the UK.
