This was released theatrically ??????
22 May 2005 | by (Long Island, New york) – See all my reviews

I purchased this film for $1.00. It was a double feature DVD with a 1967 Italian made war film called Desert Commando's. Ransom Money (1970) is the first film on the disc. The acting is absolutely terrible. The film has to do with the kidnap and ransom of a rich woman's son. Broderick Crawford plays the lead detective, and he does the best job that he possible can do with this limited material. This film looks like an old made for TV movie, not something that would be released theatrically. There are some unintentional laughs in this film, and the limited budget shows. The Vegas photography is quite good, sort of a history piece, showing Vegas of the 70's. I give this film a 3 out of 10. See this film if you are only interested in cheesy cheap unintentionally funny films.
