Ray Dennis Steckler had just completed filming the last scene, when walking to his car, he saw Coleman Francis drunk and lying in the gutter. Steckler felt so bad about Francis's condition that, even though he had finished work on the movie, he offered Francis a role in it. Steckler added some scenes just to give Francis some work and some badly needed cash, which he gave Francis in advance. Steckler and his crew were astonished when Francis showed up for work the next day sober, clean-shaven and nicely attired. This was a bit of a problem since Steckler had wanted him to play the part of a disheveled bum. Francis had used the advance pay to buy a decent second-hand suit, a shave and a haircut. See more »
A rare occasion here, Steckler being semi-serious.
His attempt to make a classic P.I. film succeeds admirably. That said, he didn't avoid humor either.
This had it all, cynical statements, dry narration, a dame that's 'not afraid to let you know what a rotten night's sleep she's had.' A low budget version of the 40's films. He even did a direct homage to 'Breathless.'
Tension built slowly but never really took off. That didn't hurt the film in any way though. Steckler has this gift. You just want to stick around and see what's next.
And he did play the role well.
