poor Italian crime film
22 February 2013 | by (Sardinia) – See all my reviews

This is in my opinion one of the worst Italian crime films I've seen. Acting, screenplay nonexistent. The leading actor (Eastman) wanders from one side to the other of the town and the viewer can' t understand what is happening.

I don't understand why the film was shot in S. Francisco with Italian, American actors unknown except for Jack Palance in the role of a worthless gangster. Surely A. Brescia, the director, directed better films (see Napoli serenata calibro 9). Sound strange but the original dialogues were in English then dubbed for the Italian market. In Italy is difficult to get this movie. I had (I deleted it after viewing!) an old recording maybe from VHS. I give it 3 out of 10.
