Trivia

When John Frankenheimer was asked why he made this movie in a 1983 interview, he said: "I don't know. I guess I just wanted the work. I never really had a grip on that film. I didn't know what the hell it was. I knew it wasn't a comedy. I guess I thought it was a parody." See more »

Classic gangster movie
15 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Excellent close-ups, lots of black humor, great music, classical gangster scenario. A movie one can review a lot of times. Harris is one of my favorite actors. Others also show great acting. Very good in showing America in 1970's Even murder scenes appear to be somehow "easy-watching", which is rare, especially in recent times. Scenes showing mafia appear to be a little bit funny, but at the same time resembling some movies like Godfather. Excellent nervous scene when Harris is disarming the chair bomb at school. Spooky but also somewhat funny episodes showing underwater cemetery. Connors hook-hand is very amusing, especially when he mounts some "flowers-kit" on it. Real classic!
