I feel the need to comment here because surprisingly no one else has! What the hey?! This is basically "The Vic Morrow Show." The plot is secondary to the strength of Vic Morrow's performance and the great dialogue. Vic plays Harry, a guy stuck between a rock and a hard place, a victim of circumstances. Or in this case: a Vic Morrow of circumstances. In just about every scene Vic lets hilarious one-liners gently roll off his tongue and bitches about everything. He's really funny and made me an instant fan. He is complimented perfectly by the heavy (pun intended), Victor Buono, who gives yet another fine performance. Every scene he's in generates chuckles. It's obvious he's having fun hamming it up. The ending is great too, which has Vic literally strutting down the street. Adding to the effect, he's wearing yellow-tinted sunglasses while he strikes cool tough-guy facial expressions. Totally awesome. Unfortunately, as yet, this movie is unavailable in the USA- or at least very rare. I recommend buying a Phillips multi-region DVD player off Amazon for about 65 bucks and then buying the PAL DVD of this movie that's now available.
