Storyline

The film centres around gangland boss Vic Morono who presides over a mixed pack of cards with the trumps being the 'The Four Deuces'-Chip Morono, Mickey Navarro, Ben Arlen and Smokey Ross. There's an abundance of humor,sadness and blood in this fast moving film although not necessarily in that order! it all comes to a head in the final shoot out with just one left standing but who is it to be, and whats he been left with... has he been dealt the worst hand of all?

Deuces Mild
24 April 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

"This is a tongue-in-cheek crime melodrama that became a 'Late Late Show' fixture in the 1980s," according to the DVD sleeve, "Jack Palance plays Vic Morono, a high-ranking Prohibition-era mobster with a weakness for women who is waging an ongoing war with rival hoodlum Chico Hamilton (Warren Berlinger). Vic falls for gorgeous blonde Wendy (Carol Lynley). The film's title refers to the name of his speakeasy, and to his gang, which consists of himself, Wendy, and a brace comic-relief hoodlums."

"The Four Deuces" opens with cartoon credits, and attempts a stylish comic strip look. Expecting some wit upon seeing the name Don Martin in the credits will drive you stark raving nuts - this is not the cartoonist who worked for "Mad" magazine. Light bondage and female flesh scenes might have upped ratings for those 1980s "Late Late Show" airings. Perhaps most notable is the that Ms. Lynley and Mr. Berlinger worked much more memorably together in the stage and film versions of "Blue Denim".

*** The Four Deuces (1/76) William H. Bushnell ~ Jack Palance, Carol Lynley, Warren Berlinger, Adam Roarke
