Vic Morrow steals the show
20 September 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was surprised to see only one other review for this film so I thought to submit one myself for what I consider to be quite an enjoyable crime caper. Harry Black (Vic Morrow) is a bit of an habitual bad boy, being well known to the police chief, but soon Harry is mixed up in a murder mystery after transporting a mysterious Englishman to Istanbul. Cue Harry being pursued by all and sundry including the beautiful Suzanne Pleshette who may or may not be what she claims to be.

This is really a Vic Morrow vehicle as he wise-cracks and struts his way through the film. Even the chief bad guy played by an on-form Victor Buono hams it up mercilessly and is the ideal foil for Vic Morrow's good guy. No crime caper would be complete without a femme fatale and here she is in the shape of Charlotte Rampling, surely a woman designed for this role as can be seen in Farewell My lovely (1975).

This review is from the UK DVD which seems to be slightly cut down from its original form. The bedroom scene at the start bears all the signs of being panned and scanned with sharp cutaways and very close up close-ups. Also, the role of Virginia Hale seems to have been cut out completely because despite viewing the film several times, there seems to be no sign whatsoever of Miss Hale. Despite this, the film is a welcome antidote to the modern fast and loud type action films.
