Quotes

Jerry Jackson: [about to be hanged] My friends, I don't care whether you're for me or against me. All that matters is that you've come her today in your thousands to give me a grand send off. To you lovely ladies, don't throw your love, your caresses, your tears on villains like me. Save them for a man who's worth it. An honest, faithful man. If you can find one! To the men I'll give a word of warning, never put your faith in a woman. For no matter how much you may think she loves you, like as not she'll ...

Michael Winner should have been on the gallows with Captain Jerry!
1 August 2006 | by See all my reviews

The original 1940s version of this film, starring Margaret Lockwood is a really enjoyable campfest. This dire remake is one of the worst films I have had the misfortune to see! Being a fan of the original, I was curious to catch this version which was broadcast on satellite last night (I had not seen it previously). Viewers are expected to believe that the grandfatherly Denholm Elliot would be the object of love/lust for a beautiful young Glynis Barber and then a (totally charmless) Faye Dunaway. At times, the poor old lad has trouble getting around the set let alone keeping two women happy. Faye Dunaway is meant to be Ms. Barber's 'friend' whilst actually looking like her mother. Ms. Dunaway (even then an old broiler with the head stuck out of an aeroplane window pulled-back face look) is lusted after by Alan Bates and Oliver Tobias. The whole premise is ludicrous. Hopelessly miscast, badly acted and directed the film is a total mess and one views it with the horrible fascination of a car crash! Whether or not it is meant to be tongue in cheek I don't know, but it certainly caused a few laughs! I'm afraid that Michael Winner's crime against cinema is far worse than Captain Jerry's highway robbery so in my view it should be MW swinging from the gibbet at Tyburn!!!
