Wealthy Peter Sterling and his younger wife Christine have an existence of little excitement so when a stranger comes into their lives, she is intrigued. An affair turns into much more and they are soon plotting to rob Peter of a precious gemstone.
Louis Jourdan once said of his character Peter Stirling: "He is the opposite end of me and if I am to be at all successful with it, Peter will have to become me or at least another facet of me. The joy of acting is the ability to make different characters fit you. It is an absorbing challenge". See more »
Double Deal is a tight plotted out of the realm Oz films, which to be honest, I really love. It's sexy, dangerous, thrilling, and so perfectly cast, with great French import Jordan, at his baddest best. Angela Punch Mcgregor has never looked so hot. She's a bored rich housewife married to player Jordan. A dark, handsome and little menacing stranger (Comber), walks into her life. She goes off with him, where they rob country banks, Comber becoming more menacing but intriguing as you really don't know what to make of his inner self. Also he and Mcgregor have concocted a plan of kidnapping and ransom, for Jordan to pay a healthy amount to get his loved one back. But honestly there's no love between this unhappy couple. The less said about this one the better. Yes there are some some jaw dropping twists in this and this one's better than a lot of other oz films. It's sad this one hasn't got the exposure it so rightly deserves. The last scene is one of depressing irony, if that was one of inevitable fate. Really this is one of those movie's with it's own style and chooses to walk it's own beat, if somehow, not keeping with it's own rhythm of Australian type films, but it's a rhythm I love.
