Unforgettable
25 January 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I saw this TV movie a while ago, but never forgot it. Why ? Probably because it was a hard boiled, mean, violent and dark "film noir", in the "Charley Varrick" mood, and because the hero (Mongo) was a brutal hit man seeking revenge on his brother, beating his girl friend (sweet young Sally Field) and died alone, standing in the pouring rain. Joe DOn Baker is absolutely great in this part, really tough, not even with a golden heart. His encounter with a blind man when he arrives in town is quite shocking. Telly Savalas played a Kojak-like cop, his sidekick was a very young Martin Sheen (in his James Dean days) and Anne Francis was perfect as always as the girl who left one brother for the other. I wonder why this marvelous film never showed up on video, especially on DVD. It deserves a cult status.
