Neat little twist story
16 September 2010 | by drystyxSee all my reviews

I vaguely remember this film. Lawford and Franciosa are two killers after a beautiful woman, and they're out on a mission of death. There's actually three men on the job. The third is a young man who isn't in on the kill, just the getaway. He is an expert driver.

Franciosa is his usual charming self, and Lawford is in his analytical character. Much of the drama is between Franciosa and the beautiful Comer The reasons for the hunt aren't exactly clear. There is a twist ending, the sort that modern audiences will hate, and won't admit to being a twist ending.

Doing this from memory, I hate to use the word "dated", but since this was a piece that prided itself on "modernism", it may well be dated in some areas. Of course it won't be dated for real, since it is set in another era.
