Did You Know?


When Hank Dick (Darren McGavin) takes the hot dog from Joey Turks (Billy Zane), it has a bite taken off of one end, even though Joey has not yet taken a bite (and the fact that it has a bite off one end appears to be deliberately concealed by the wrapper and its handling, but becomes apparent as soon as Hank picks it up). Hank then takes a bite off the other end, so that it has a bite taken off of both ends. In the next shot, Hank is holding a complete hot dog that has had no bites taken off of it. In the next shot, Hank is holding a hot dog with a bite off of only one end and he is chewing that bite. These shots appear to have been placed out of sequence in the film. See more »

User Reviews

31 January 2004 | by turing77See all my reviews

This film is a true sleeper. It's on late-night cable a lot, so there must be some recognition of its merits, considering it is such an old film. In a nutshell, this is pure LA noir, with crazy characters, crazy circumstances, and a lot of weirdness goin' on. The cast is superb, with Billy Zane striking just the right note, Darren McGavin turning in a hilarious performance, and the ageless and beautiful Jennifer Beals playing a subdued but nuanced part. (Kudos also to Harry Shearer, for a great cameo.) This film is truly a keeper, full of little moments that are funnier on reflection. (E.g., Bart starts to get amorous, so Joey all of a sudden starts concentrating on his dinner...hilarious.) Great entertainment.
