Milo March: You say you've known him for a long time?
Robert Stone: Yes, he's been doing our books for fifteen years at least. The quietest, nicest fellow you could meet. He came here about once in two weeks. Carter and I used to look at the stone together. We used to stand here, just looking.

A good plot and a great cast.
14 July 2009 | by 1bilboSee all my reviews

I suspect that this was a "B" movie of the day. We don't have "Second feature" movies any more, nowadays we are presented with one almighty production that revolves around a single famous actor and a host of special effects.

This little offering is different, there is a host of really great actors and a lot of character development. Anthony Newley is great and fits his role so well. Palance seems to be not quite with it but I have noticed this in a few of his films, his Texan accent was a mistake.

It was interesting to see the change in our leading lady after she had been beaten up. Even her ample top didn't seem to be bursting at the seams!

Well worth a watch - if you can get it.
