Clever Crooks Drive Frank Crazy

9/10

This was a fast-paced story about a male-female duo who knocked off gas stations. They were motorcycle gang members who appeared to be working on their own. However, they would always use an innocent third party as a sucker to obtain info on the places they robbed and, after knocking over places and injuring the person at the station, they would speed away and then go up ramps into a semi-trailer parked nearby so they could disappear. Two other accomplices would help them with the big truck.

This case drove "Frank Ballinger" (Lee Marvin) nuts for awhile because of that disappearing-bikes strategy. He never saw that truck angle.

I liked Yvette Vickers in here. She was great as the cheap-looking blonde biker with an attitude, the same type of wise-butt attitude she had in the sci-fi classic, "Attack Of The 50-Foot Woman."

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

***SPOILERS*** Lee Marvin as Chicago police detective Frank Ballinger goes undercover as a member of an bike club to uncover who's been knocking off gas stations in the city of Chicago and escaping on motorcycles into thin air before the police arrive. As Ballinger soon finds out the two bikers Bob Michaels and his gun crazy girlfriend Sally, John Brinkley & Yvette Vickers, have help in getting away by using a moving van as their cover that their bikes are stored in.

With the help of biker club member Lernny Maston, Ed Nelson, who's being used by the two criminal bikers without him knowing it Ballinger gets all the information he needs to track them down and bring the two outlaw bikers to justice. Knowing their escape plan and blocking their getaway car or truck, the moving van, the two gas station robbers commit or try to commit their las gas station robbery before the curtain or heat, police, falls down on top of them.

The already thin and fit looking Lee Marvin was so good playing an outlaw biker looking as if he lost 30 pounds in the what looked like a size 29 pair of bleached dungarees and worn out leather jacket he was wearing while undercover that it for a while was hard to believe that he was a member of the Chicago Police Departmnent but a member of the bike club that he was infiltrating.
