Trivia

A host of production problems, including financing, location and personnel issues, caused filming to be stopped several times, resulting in at least four different directors - regardless of their experience in musical comedies - working on the project at various times. One director, Ray Nazarro, specialized almost exclusively in "B" westerns and cheap hillbilly musicals for Columbia, and was hired because he just happened to be in Europe when a director was needed. Producer Albert Zugsmith also directed some scenes in the periods between when one director left and another was hired. See more »

Mediterranean getaway...
9 June 2002 | by kibishiiSee all my reviews

"Dog Eat Dog" follows the backstabbing adventures of a group of thieves. This black and white, foreign production, is probably most notable for the presence of Jayne Mansfield. Her character, "Darlene" is a member of a three member criminal gang. She is both fond of money, clean underwear, and using the expression "crackers".

Cameron Mitchell is the second member of the group, who is nearly dealt out of the game by the third (Ivor Salter). Mistrustful, but still bound by the money, the group takes to the sea to make their getaway, trailed by an opportunistic hotel manger (Aldo Carmada). Stopping at an island, they encounter a strange group in residency there. Greed and madness lead to murder. And the money becomes a ridiculous fashion accessory.

Not a great deal of depth, to this B movie, but OK for some late evening intrigue and suspense.
