Trivia

The final shot, with Marlon Brando smiling in a close-up, was particularly difficult to film for director Hubert Cornfield. Brando kept on making silly faces and refused to smile because he was upset that the ending he preferred was not filmed. In the editing room, Cornfield picked out one frame in which Brando smiled before making another face. See more »

Worthwhile kidnap drama
2 February 2001 | by (Seminole, FL) – See all my reviews

This picture is worth time to see, but only if you've willing to invest the time to put in the effort to pay close attention. It is not a good choice as a movie to keep on in the background. The kidnapping goes wrong almost immediately, not from law enforcement personnel, but from within. We see the changing relationships between the kidnappers as the hours with their victim go on.

Added note: Try to rent the video. When NBC showed the movie on commercial television, the network added additional scenes featuring the brother of the victim working a police inspector. These scenes are not outtakes from the original movie that NBC restored, but new scenes that NBC filmed and added to make clearer the kidnappers' fate. They are unnecessary and rather insulting to the audience that the network felt they needed to "improve" the movie.
