Trivia

Broadcast 18 November 1964. This was the second made-for-TV movie to air in the US following See How They Run (1964) on NBC 7 October 1964). However, it was Don Siegel''s second foray into filming a feature for TV, since his first, The Killers (1964) was determined to be too violent for television and instead went to theatrical distribution.

Pointless remake of Ride the Pink Horse
19 July 2015 | by waldog2006See all my reviews

Watching this film on a poor-picture YouTube download is not ideal, admittedly, but it is also bogged down by a near-lethargic performance from Robert Culp, an ineffective location change from Mexico to New Orleans during Mardi Gras, leaden dialogue, funereal pacing, and the writing out of the major Thomas Gomez character from the original to be replaced by a fairly pointless performance by J Carrol Naish. Hard to believe this was directed by Don Siegel but it fails to rise above 1960s TV-movie status. Edmond O'Brien tries to bring some life to the proceedings - his corrupt Hoffa-like character is the most likable player. Norman Fell also shines, and Vera Miles tries her best with the little the script gives her to do. Noir fans should stick to the original, which is a classic. For Don Siegel completists only.
