I saw this movie when it first came out and I was enthralled! Sean Connery, Dyan Cannon, come on! I was 16 and It had everything a teen could want. The plot was excellent and well executed. I thought that the casting was outstanding and Martin Balsam out did himself as the gay appraisal expert, really camping it up and almost over the top. It was the first role I saw Garrett Morris in and he did not disappoint. I loved the sympathetic older ex-con, Pop, who just did not have the heart to go on with life. I could go on and on, believe me! Quincy Jones did an admirable job on the sound track of course, and the direction and pace was outstanding. I have since became a big fan of Sidney Lumet films and see them every chance I get. Christopher Walken was just breaking in his chops but gave a solid performance. I have to say the movie holds up just as well now as it did all of those years ago in the theater.
