The film begins with a cartoon figure in striped prison clothing dancing across the film's title and Otto Preminger's credit on the main characters' TV set. The channel is switched by Jackie Gleason before any other names are revealed. See more »
Reading the myriad raves of the users in this forum........trying to legitimize one of the most calamitous disasters in the history of mainstream American cinema......is alternately nauseating and shameful. Preminger's moronic, loud and incoherent stab at late sixties hipness may provide occasional shocks in how desperate he became, but this is squaresville squared. I guess using, and I mean USING every one of Otto's devoted ensemble cast of his "glory" years of the late fifties to about the Cardinal in '63 (Lawford, Meredith,etc.)provided some kind of buffer to what he must have known was a million to one stab at phantasmagoric swill, but he sacrificed them anyway. And, for once, the film was justifiably buried after its premiere and surfaces occasionally to remind any thinking human it needed to remain buried. This makes his racist trash (although not without camp value) Hurry Sundown in '67 and the following smarmy pseudo-liberalism of "Tell me that you love me, Junie Moon" in'70 outstanding by comparison. Take my word for it and understand why it is one of the lowest rating film on this board. I have actually seen it recently and it is worthless and even worse...damaging. I couldn't wait to see this dream cast in a film I would have guaranteed was awaiting rediscovery. Just forget about it and move on with your lives..........
