Harvey's last film (in which he reportedly help edit by phone in his deathbed) is a twisted would be horror film that Warner Bros barely released. (it played in Seattle many years later in one drive-in as TENDER FLESH released by Brut). Harvey plays a Korean war vet who ate human flesh to survive in the jungle, but now he has a sickness and not even his sister (who's also his lover) Pettet can stop. Meg Foster plays a hitchhiker that he befriends, who witnesses him doing something evil in the basement and she might be his next victim. Interesting cast (whitman and Ireland together again for the 4th time), and lurid feel that the film has. Lou Rawls sings the main theme, which is a nice song, but really has nothing to do witht he film! There's a blooper in the end credit as you see cars drive backwards. I don't know why Harvey, a respected actor would direct a B horror film, but I read many stories on him being strange, so the story must have grabbed him. Use to be a cable classic in the old days, and played very heavily cut on TV with cut out the cannibal angle so the film is very confusing, as the TV version just makes him out to be a killer, and nothing more. I believe it is the first major studio film to deal with cannibalism.
