Kubrick's First Star, Frank Silvera, Highlighted
6 April 2011 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

Frank Silvera, an actor who successfully played a lot of tough hoods on TV in the 1960s, plays "Dino Patrone," the main criminal in this story about a thug who deals in narcotics. (Note: Silvera also starred in Stanley Kubrick's first or second feature film, "Killer's Kiss").

Well-known actor John McIntire also guest-stars in here. There are a lot of familiar faces to those of us who watched TV in this era.

The story is a good one with a number of angles: the good guys, the bad guys, and one man in particular - an influential media guy - who is trying to be "on the fence" (as the title indicates) and finally has to make a decision who he's going to help.
