Storyline

Four rogue Secret Service agents, led by one named Baron, commandeer the house of war-widow Ellen. Her home is a prime sniper position for their plan to assassinate the President on his visit to the small town of Suddenly. The men fool the local cops except for one, Todd. A washed-up former war hero and deputy who is now the town drunk, Todd served with Ellen's deceased husband and has developed romantic feelings for her over the years. But she rebuffs his advances. Todd visits the house and is immediately suspicious of Baron, but no one will listen to the ravings of a drunk. Once Todd realizes what is going on, he manages to kill one of Baron's crew, but is captured. Now he and Ellen must find a way to stop Baron and his men before they kill the President.

Goofs

Early in the movie, when the fake secret service agents are hiding in the house, the real agents show up to check out the house and its occupants. They make a big deal out of looking at everything and getting everyone's name, but fail to notice the fake agents' vehicle, presumably with out-of-state license plates parked right in the driveway. The fake agents park the SUV in the garage before the real agents arrive. What seems to be a goof is that once the real agents leave, the SUV is shown parked back outside. The fake agents could have pulled it back out of the garage, but this is never seen. See more »

Go to youtube and watch the original.
8 February 2014 | by ellic1See all my reviews

Some movies just shouldn't be remade. I gave this film a 2 star rating because I did watch to the end. I like the actors, but they can't make up for poor script revision and direction. It also doesn't help that they took what is largely a dialog film and tried to add too much action. My advice go to YouTube and watch the original (B&W not colorized). Frank Sinatra, Sterling Hayden and James Gleason carried the movie with style. Direction by Lewis Allen was excellent. The original pulls all the pieces together better. I don't want to put any spoilers in, so I'll simply say that there was no reason to change Todds' character. And Pidge played better as a kid than a teenager.
